Edyta Lachowicz-Santos

I have worked at the University of Economics in Katowice, Poland for the last 18 years engaging in diverse activities related to internationalization at various positions (currently Director of Marketing Communications). During that time I have coordinated and participated in many international projects involving both HEIs and employers. Moreover, I am a consultant on employability and actively cooperate with municipality attracting investors to Katowice. Since 2002 I have taken an active role in EAIE conferences, sharing my skills and passion as a presenter at several sessions. In 2012 I was invited to join the Expert Community  Employability as a Resource person and in 2015 I was honored with the  Rising Star Award, which motivated me even more to continue my volunteer work for the EAIE. In 2016 I was elected Chair of the same Expert Community  and I feel ready, trusted and eager 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 to the expertise and value provided to EAIE members. Together with the other Employability Steering group members, putting our energy and commitment together, I believe we can make a difference.
