Monique Takla

Learning, Evaluation and Grants Operations Fellow

Monique joined the Global Fund for Women as a Learning, Evaluation and Grantmaking Fellow. She recently completed her Master’s  in Program and Policy Evaluation and Research from Middlebury Institute of International Studies. As a Master’s student, ­­she conducted a program evaluation for a peacebuilding and security organization in Moldova, and after completing her studies, she led a research team that studied the implementation of a new environmental policy in rural areas of Nepal. Monique received her bachelor’s degree in Government with a focus on migration from Harvard University. During her undergraduate studies she directed mentorship programs for underserved youth in Boston and she served as a translator for a labor union for undocumented, immigrant workers in Morocco. She counts herself fortunate to have studied and worked in Morocco, Argentina, France, and Nepal, and is thrilled to work at the intersection of evaluation and grants operations as a Global Fund for Women Fellow.
