Claire Gribbin

After initially thinking I would have an academic career, I switched to the corporate world, where I spent 25 years in leadership roles in the tech sector. My last role in this area was as the Director for Small and Medium Business for Sub-Saharan Africa for Microsoft. It was in this role that I was exposed to the need for sustainable community development and decided to go back to my original intention of an academic career. I am now working on a PhD in Social Work at University of Johannesburg.
