Juliette Delman-Lagot

Fellow

Juliette graduated Summa Cum Laude from New York University with a B.A in International Relations.  On campus, she worked for the NYU think tank, Institute of Public Knowledge, where she helped plan a conference on the intersection of climate change and health.  She sought out thought leaders in health, communications and framing, infrastructure, and social resiliency in order to create dynamic workshops, bringing otherwise siloed research together.  Off campus, Juliette interned with a number of international development organizations.  At the Clinton Foundation, she collaborated with members to create global education project proposals and researched trends in education such as education in emergency settings, the lack of teacher training in Sub-Saharan Africa, and 21st Century skills.  At Integrare, a public health NGO in Spain, she conducted quantitative research on combatting maternal mortality through midwifery and created advocacy materials used by Ministries Health in francophone African countries.  In Washington DC, she was a development intern for Refugees International, where she worked on grant proposals and researched refugee trends in the Horn of Africa.

Juliette’s passion for an array of humanitarian issues began prior to NYU when she traveled throughout Sub-Saharan Africa researching and volunteering with NGOs.  In Rwanda, she worked with genocide reconciliation groups and studied Rwanda’s national healthcare system.  In Kenya, she studied agricultural reform and worked with farmers to install drip irrigation systems.  While in Ethiopia and Ghana, Juliette volunteered with orphanages and taught English language classes.
