Interests: Corruption, Economic Empowerment, Gender-based violence, Governance
I am Vice President, Community Service & Development at the University of Technology, Jamaica. I was awarded a professorial Chair in Entrepreneurship and Development in 2008, in recognition of work in the promotion, development and advocacy of entrepreneurship, including my leadership of an alliance of micro, small and medium sized enterprises - The MSME Alliance - for about 10 years. In 1998 I established and led the Institute of Law & Economics (ILE) to teach law and para-legal studies and engage in legal advocacy. I have also served as Chief Advisor to the Prime Minister of Jamaica, and has engaged in consultancies with various government agencies and other international organizations. I am currently leading a major national project - Fi Wi Jamaica - which promotes good governance, human rights advocacy, among other things.

I am interested in joining the network to learn from international partners and to share our experiences with others.
