After beginning her professional activity in tech startups, Lilian Abou Zeki went on to manage engagement and growth for Amnesty MENA and Africa. She currently leads innovation portfolios in the humanitarian development sector. The crux of her work is about moving human centred research and expertise online in an actionable, engaging and converting framework to mobilise people in ways that would influence decision makers.

Lilian is passionate about the way women experience work outside of the man-woman binary and focuses on the unique nuances that make women entrepreneurs, business-owners and leaders succeed, that is thanks to these nuances and not despite them.

More recently, Lilian has been exploring the confluence of AI and human rights, channelling SWANA imaginations as a way to bring makers and thinkers together into a space of agency and fun when it comes to conceiving the future.
