Meet our new Communications & Events Manager Birgit Ros

Team – May 10th, 2020

“My name is Birgit Ros, and I started on 1 May as Communications and Events Manager at DCHI. I am excited to join DCHI as we’re developing some innovative communications campaigns designed to foster the humanitarian engagement.”
What is your background?

“I hold a bachelors degree in communications and design management and gained communications experience at the global chemical company Huntsman, a family run corporation with a strong safety culture. I learned a lot for example about lean management and crisis communications, but also that sometimes a change from the ‘business as usual’ can lead to more innovation and sustainability.

For the last few years I’ve worked as a communications advisor for Rotterdam School of Management (RSM), Erasmus Center for Data Analytics and the Municipality of Rotterdam, with great researchers and companies on topics such as: energy and data. In particular, I worked on forecasting the universities knowledge on impact and innovations. And for Rotterdam on their ambition to become a data driven city, to foster its services and organisations for their citizens.”

What drew you towards this role at DCHI?

“RSM was one the first European business school to link the SDG’s to its teaching and research. It started a wave to commit to all its activities with a purpose. I was happy to contribute and realised the next step in work needed to be work with impact and leverage. I was therefore happy to start the DCHI journey and I am looking forward to meet all current and future partners, helping to scale the network and communications goals.”
