Katja Iversen has taken quite the journey from the small village in rural Denmark where she was born, to New York and to the world’s biggest board rooms and stages. She has worked in the United Nations, in civil society, in the private sector and has headed her own company. She is as comfortable in high heels striding through the halls of power, as she is in the rural villages of the many countries where she has worked, studied or traveled.
Education wise, Katja Iversen holds a MSc in Communications, a BA in Policy & Public Administration, Certificates in Strategic Communications, International Development, Negotiations and Conflict Resolution, as well as a Management and Leadership degree from Columbia University’s Business School.
She speaks English (fluent), Danish (mother tongue), Swedish and Norwegian (work proficient), Italian, Spanish, and German (basic).
