Join Lori and Helen Krug von Nidda as they discuss about receiving support and paying it forward to the community. Helen does a lot of work around career transitioning for women. She shares the impact of providing support to women who don’t have access to the tools and resources for their education. Stay tuned!


Here are the things to expect in this episode:

  • What inspired Helen to focus on causes related to women and education?
  • Having peer-to-peer coaching groups for the women she works with. What impact does it have on them?
  • The value of collaborating and building connections with various communities.
  • And much more!


About Helen:


A contagiously optimistic coach, trainer, and speaker, I have advanced countless career paths for individuals at the United Nations, as well as in the nonprofit and private sectors. I was the HR Strategic Partner at United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA) and formerly Director of Talent Management at the International Rescue Committee (IRC). I have also worked for UNICEF, the United Nations, the World Wildlife Fund for Nature (WWF) and, in the private sector, for Reuters and Sotheby’s.


I have lived and travelled internationally — from London to Lome, Oslo to Ouagadougou, Niamey to New York.


Fluent in French, I am a graduate of Smith College, hold a Masters in Human Resources Management, and am currently pursuing a Doctorate in Adult Learning at Columbia University.


I am an accredited and certified Coach, and a licensed Career Counsellor. Most importantly, when I am not immersed in coaching and training, you might find me engaged in either of my two favourite pastimes: running along the Hudson River or indulging in a hot chocolate.
