My name is Anna Jeppesen, and I’m a former member of OECD Youthwise. I am 21 years old, and I live in Denmark where I work as pedagogical assistant until I start my education as a pedagogue. I’m Chairman of Assens Youth Council and I’m also Vice chairman of the Network of Youth Councils in Denmark. I have always believed that young people should have a say in important matters, since we are the ones who are going to take over the world that is left behind for us. By volunteering, I feel as if my voice is finally heard.
Vice President and Global Head, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR), IBM
Justina Nixon-Saintil drives strategic, socially responsible programmatic investments that enable IBM’s technology and talent to address some of society's biggest challenges worldwide. The CSR programs Justina manages enable IBM and its employees to transform their altruism into reality. For example, IBM SkillsBuild and P-TECH, use multisector partnerships to help create more inclusive and innovative schools and workforces. She also spearheads corporate practices that underpin the company's tradition of uncompromising ethics and transparency in its operations and environmental footprint.
I have been working as thought leader and program director in the area of longevity, retirement preparations, and inclusion and diversity. My key area of interest is exploring opportunities for the 100 Year Life so that we can continue to life our lives with a sense of financial security and purpose into ripe old age. I led the Aegon Retirement Readiness Survey for six years under the theme of creating a New Social Contract where the focus has been on building solidarity between stakeholders to create sustainable solutions that are inclusive of vulnerable groups where no one is left behind.
I also have a strong interest in inclusion and diversity and in that regard founded our company’s LGBT Employee Resource Group with chapters in the Netherlands, U.S., and U.K.
