E10S8: Women in Peacebuilding with Manal El Tayar

Summary & Key takeaways

This episode was brought to you thanks to the Rotary Peace Fellowship (more info below)

If you ask me who is the face of the XXI Century peacebuilder professional, I would say it’s Manal El Tayar.

Manal is a Rotary Peace Fellow, trilingual development professional with 7+ years of experience in project management and monitoring and evaluation skills in the fields of economic development and peace & justice transformation. Manal has represented Lebanon in a number of regional and international competitions as a national level track and field athlete.

In Episode 10 of Season 8 you learn how Manal moved over 20 times in her childhood and youth years as a result of living in war-ravaging Lebanon and how she ran as a coping mechanism.  Behind every successful professional, there is a story of pain and resilience. This is Manal’s story.

Currently, Manal is the Cora Weiss Peacebuilding Fellow GNPW (Global Network of Women Peacebuilders); Fragile States Peacebuilding Advisor at Tearfund and Founding Member and Director of Programs at UI (Unconventional International).
