Hi, I am Raluca, a young professional with five years of experience in sustainable development and corporate culture change, focused on designing & implementing sustainable business practices that benefit both the company & its stakeholders.
I started my journey by wanting to understand how societies work; therefore, I studied Political Science & Public Administration and later specialized myself in sustainable development, gender & minorities policies and social entrepreneurship. My education helped me to form a broader vision to which I adhered at the very beginning of my career, namely that the responsibilities of private entities must shift towards tackling pressing societal problems through their products and services.
I acquired most of my expertise working in a multi-national power company on complex issues such as, but not limited to, tackling the shortage of well-prepared personnel, diversity & inclusion in the workplace, facilitating skills building on social entrepreneurship, internal process innovation related with access to energy and vulnerable groups, improving the client-company relationships.
I would choose thorough analysis of a problem any day in the pursuit of the best resolve instead of trendy solutions. I like to work in a collaborative manner, but I also do well on my own. I believe that my strongest skills are hand-on project management in sustainability & innovation fields, background diagnosis & feasibility analysis, facilitating problem solving, systems thinking, stakeholders engagement & managing cross-functional teams.
The mission that guides my change management journey & in fact every aspect of my professional life is the “Creating Shared Value” social and economic model. In a nutshell, every solution has to be human-centered and for the benefit of all the parties involved.  

These are my objectives:
• To become a catalyst for change inside the organization I work for
• To solve problems in a creative and people-oriented way
• To be a bridge-builder between people working in different fields
• To build upon the idea that private entities can contribute to systemic change in society
• To become a better person everyday
