Join us for a very special chapter meeting with Melissa Alvarado, UN WOMEN Programme Specialist with the Ending Violence against Women Programme
Melissa Alvarado manages UN Women’s Ending Violence against Women portfolio in the Pacific region. She has been working specifically on ending violence against women and children for over 15 years, through programme management and design, policy development, interagency response system development, technical assistance, training, advocacy and research. Prior to working in the Pacific, Ms. Alvarado worked for UN Women in New York in the Policy Division on Ending Violence against Women, for UNFPA in Sudan, managing gender based violence programmes in conflict settings, and with international NGOs in Thailand and Kosovo working with refugees and people affected by conflict. From the United States, Ms. Alvarado holds a Master’s degree in Social Work and was first drawn to this work by her experiences advocating for and supporting survivors of violence against women in crisis.
