In the over 100 years since International Women’s Day was first recognized, there have been significant advances for women globally in the work place. NSPA strives to recruit highly qualified and motivated staff who represent the diversity of our member States and are able to make a difference, particularly qualified women. Below we have highlighted some NSPA women who have shared with us some of their insights into their unique jobs and their views on diversity in the workplace. Gerta Shaqe is from Albania and has worked for the past year as a Senior Clerk in the Life Cycle Management Directorate; Charlotte Villeneuve is French and started as Legal Advisor at NSPA last summer; and Sandra Cuenca Barrena from Spain and joined the NSPA in summer 2017 as an Environmental Technical Officer in Support to Operations Directorate.
