KateWhiteOur keynote speaker will be Kathryn White, President and CEO of the United Nations Association in Canada (UNA-Canada) since 2004. She also serves as elected Chair of the Board of the World Federation of UN Associations (WFUNA). Prior to her work at UNA-Canada, she had been the head of Black & White Inc. an Ottawa-based international consultancy specializing in foreign and social policy research and development.
