Monika Johnson

MBA/MS Program 2019

Monika’s five years at the United Nations Foundation (UNF) led her to the Erb Institute, where she plans to focus on supply chain sourcing and workforce development for companies using natural resources.

As an “intrapreneur,” she worked with internal and external colleagues to build the campaign’s grassroots advocacy mechanisms, digital strategy, and cross-sector partnerships. Monika’s involvement in the launch of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals spurred her interest in the exciting potential of global sustainable enterprise and public-private partnerships.
