Hannah Winnick is Program Director for Transatlantic Dialogues on Democracy and Social Policy at the Heinrich Boell Foundation North America. The program aims to enhance transatlantic policy exchange on two core issues: 1) Migration & Integration, which promotes responsible policies for the humane and dignified treatment of migrants and refugees, as well as their comprehensive integration into schools, workplaces, and societies, and 2) the Digital Economy, which promotes a nuanced dialogue on both the challenges to civil liberties and the opportunities for innovation of digital technologies.
Prior to joining the Foundation, Hannah worked as Transnational Liaison at Hispanics in Philanthropy (HIP), an organization dedicated to strengthening the Latino non-profit sector in the US and Latin America. She has also worked with LEAD, the Mercator Capacity Building Center for Leadership and Advocacy in Berlin, to examine new models of leadership in German diplomacy. She has a broad range of international experience, having lived, worked, and studied in Germany, France, Turkey, the Dominican Republic, Israel and Portugal. Hannah holds a Master in Public Policy from the Harvard Kennedy School, where she focused on international negotiation and conflict resolution, and a Bachelor’s degree in Political Science from Amherst College.
