LOGI Executive Director Diana Kaissy was elected to the board of the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), becoming the first Arab woman to take on the role at the prestigious body that sets the world standard for transparency in extractive industries.
“For the next three years I will dedicate myself to ensuring that civil society in Lebanon and abroad are able to voice their concerns and affect transparency standards in a way that will allow them to use the EITI as a reform tool,” Kaissy said.
Kaissy’s election also marks the first time also the Middle East and North Africa region is represented on the EITI’s board.
Georges Sassine, president and co-founder of LOGI said, “For the next three years, LOGI will ensure that civil society's concerns, demands, and achievements are properly reflected and amplified at the international level through Diana’s involvement on the EITI board.”
