Aga is an experienced project manager, cultural activist and researcher. Born and raised in Wrocław, Poland, she studied in France, Germany and Sweden. Aga is passionate about continuous learning – she holds two M.A. degrees, in Political Science from the University of Wrocław and in Jewish Civilizations from the Center for Jewish Studies Heidelberg. She has also completed a one-year program at the University of Strasbourg and obtained the Certificate of European Studies.
After a decade-long professional career in Brussels, Belgium where she specialized in corporate and public sector event management and communication strategies involving European Union programs and institutions, Aga embarked on a career transition. In the last four years she started working on several social, cultural and Corporate Social Responsibility projects. Among her core interests are social justice, social change, sustainable development and topics tied to the Jewish identity and Jewish heritage in Europe. Thanks to learning programs and encounters with other agents of social change, Aga successfully managed to bridge different areas of her interest and skills. She recently joined educational organization based in Jerusalem, the Middle East Entrepreneurs of Tomorrow (MEET), which aims at empowering a new generation of young Palestinian and Israeli leaders who can create positive social and political change in the region. By the means of learning technology and entrepreneurship in bi-national teams, and in partnership with the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, MEET provides a unique platform for cultivating cross-border and intercultural relationships. Aga is responsible for MEET's corporate and public partnerships and fundraising within Europe, including EU programs.
Next to her work at MEET, Aga is planning to continue her academic path in Jewish Studies within a doctoral program. In her research, she focuses on the 18th century Jewish cemetery in Wrocław, Poland and deals with questions at the intersection of history, topography and memory studies. Together with two architects Aga leads a grass-root initiative advocating for protection and commemoration of the cemetery.
