She leads shareholder advocacy campaigns calling on companies to address human rights impacts of business activities, with a focus on child labor and forced labor, worker health and safety, and human rights due diligence. This includes IASJ’s Shifting Gears initiative with the automotive sector. Gina co-leads the Peace and Demilitarization campaign and engagements on racial equity. She serves as the staff point of contact for onboarding new Affiliates and Clients and ongoing relationship management. Gina also supports the Mission-Aligned Investing (MAI) program, proxy voting, development activities, and office operations. Gina is based in IASJ’s Montclair, NJ office.
Gina’s advocacy efforts as an undergraduate student played an instrumental role in shaping her passion for our key areas of engagement. Her involvement with Oxfam’s Behind the Brands campaign led her to petition for a broad range of social and environmental issues, from ending land grabs in the sugar supply chain to improving conditions for women cocoa farmers. Gina was also involved in her college’s chapter of Free the Slaves, a group dedicated to raising awareness about human trafficking, where she helped conduct a slavery footprint survey. During her semester abroad in Geneva, Switzerland, Gina interned with International Bridges to Justice, an organization dedicated to protecting the basic legal rights of ordinary citizens in developing countries.
Gina graduated with honors from Grinnell College with a B.A. in Anthropology and French. She also completed a concentration in Global Development Studies.
