The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development (EBRD) Director for Gender and Economic Inclusion, Barbara Rambousek is selected as a member of the jury for the 2022 Summer School for Female Leadership in the Digital Age by the European Leadership Academy. 

"Super excited for Barbara Rambousek to be once again on our EU Leadership jury! We could not be more inspired by her dedication to creating equitable access to address the specific needs of women and youth," said the European Leadership Academy.

Addressing inequality challenges 

Barbara established the Bank’s approach to integrating economic inclusion into the Bank’s mandate, to address inequality challenges through private sector investments and policy engagement. Her focus is on creating equitable access to employment and skills, entrepreneurship and finance as well as key infrastructure service, reflecting the specific needs of women, youth, aging populations, migrants and others.

Barbara has 20 years leadership experience in the design and delivery of multi-sectoral inclusive development programmes and strategies in Central and Eastern Europe, the MENA region, Asia and the UK. Previously, as Head of Regeneration and Corporate Strategy for the London Development Agency, she led major urban regeneration programmes and the formulation of London’s 20-year Economic Development Strategy. Before that, she managed integrated refugee return and economic development programmes in Bosnia and Herzegovina.

She is a regular speaker at major international events and fora on topics such as inequality, inclusion, skills, just transition and gender.

Barbara holds an executive MBA from Cass Business School, London, an MSc from the London School of Economics and an MA from the University of Vienna.
