 Caterina Zamparini


My name is Caterina and I’m thrilled to be part of the Innovation Team at WIL. I am a second year MSc Student in International Relations and Diplomacy at Leiden University. As a young woman studying IR, I know how hard it is for women’s voices to be equally represented and for our rights to be thoroughly respected…even in the most advanced of countries!

I am very passionate about topics of gender equality and advancing women’s rights, especially in Europe: I think there is still much work to be done and I am determined to contribute to a better world! 

In my free time, I love to be surrounded by people or by nature - immerse myself in a book or write. 

I am super excited to work with the Innovation Team to organize events to discuss pressing issues, meet like-minded people and connect with the professional world, especially with inspiring speakers and guests! I’m looking forward to meeting you at our events!


Manon Van de Woestijne,

Head of Innovation 2019-2020

Being a WIL Member and Board Member has helped me grow so much in such a short amount of time. I cultivated and furthered my leadership, teamwork and event management skills. But most importantly, I was able to grow my network and work with some incredibly inspirational people. I feel more confident and supported due to this community of strong women.

Clara Lindemann,

Head of Program 2020-2021

Being a WIL Member has allowed me to get to know like-minded young women with a variety of skill sets outside my immediate vicinity. As a part of the Teams and Board, I have gained work experience in marketing and event management, enabling me to network with more ease and self-confidence. Furthermore, my Mentor encouraged me to become a more compassionate and effective leader.
