Justyna Janiszewska

Executive Director, Management Board member

I manage the Commission’s team, implement our plans and cooperate with key partners of the foundation, such as: U.S. Department of State, Ministry of Education and Science, U.S. Embassy in Warsaw, universities and other entities with whom we jointly carry out our mission. I am also involved in building relationships and projects for the alumni of our programs.

Ever since I started my studies, I have been continuously engaged in a non-profit sector as a volunteer and an employee. Before joining the Fulbright Commission, I had worked for 10 years at the Education for Democracy Foundation (FED) – one of the leading Polish non-governmental organizations operating in the former USSR – incl. managing the FED’s grant programs. I have collaborated with, among others, the School for Leaders Association (now: Foundation), Grupa Zagranica coalition, Stefan Batory Foundation, One World Association, Service Civil International and Amnesty International. I am a member of the Board of the Leaders of Change Foundation.

I believe that traveling helps us grow and I put it into practice not only at work while sending grantees to another continent, but also privately, showing Poland and the world to my sons. After work, I rush to my Executive MBA studies at Kozminski University.
