Edyta Lachowicz-Santos

I have worked at the University of Economics in Katowice, Poland for the last 20 years engaging in diverse activities related to internationalization (currently Director of Internationalization). Moreover, I cooperate as an external expert with NAWA Polish National Agency for Academic Exchange. Since 2002 I have taken an active role at EAIE conferences sharing my skills and passion as a speaker. In 2015 I was honored with the EAIE Rising Star Award, which motivated me even more to continue my volunteer work. Between 2012 and 2020 I was a member of the Employability Steering Group (Chair in 2016-2020) and in 2020 I was elected to the General Council. In all those years I believe I got to understand the EAIE, its needs, values and goals. It would be a great honor to continue to be a member of the General Council as I feel ready and trusted to continue to share my experience and energy. As there are only few professionals from Central and Eastern Europe involved in the management of EAIE I am convinced I can add fresh approach. I believe that together with colleagues from all over the world we can make a difference.
