Hanna is a SecondMuse Associate, working across a number of projects. Based in the Asia Pacific region, Hanna has worked on SecondMuse’s global innovation platform, LAUNCH, as well as more regional projects such as Frontier Innovators, as well as a number of research projects exploring ways in which development funding can be more effectively distributed. Currently, she is leading the Out of the Blue Box Challenge – a global search for ideas to support coral reef recovery.
Since growing up in a farming community fighting against a proposed coal mine, Hanna has looked for opportunities to work with communities to achieve social change. Prior to joining SecondMuse, Hanna headed up People and Culture for a youth-led development organisation, transforming the organisation’s processes and strategy. Within SecondMuse, she is an advocate for creating internal cultures of care that ultimately enable our teams to thrive. This is mirrored in much of her project work, supporting programming that enables a diverse range of innovators to progress their ideas.
Hanna spends her free moments torn between reading constantly and exploring nature. She can often be found digging a vegetable garden while listening to a new podcast with a big smile on her face.
