We are delighted to announce that Cristina Ljungberg has joined Acumen’s Board of Directors. Cristina is co-founder of The Case For Her, an innovative funding collaborative, investing in early stage markets. The Case For Her’s first impact portfolio, launched in 2017, is focused on menstrual health, including education, product innovation, research and distribution.
Cristina has served on Acumen’s Advisory Council for the past three years and is a long-standing partner. She was an early supporter of our education portfolio, has championed our leadership work, and has traveled with our team on several occasions. We are incredibly grateful for Cristina’s support of Acumen’s overall mission.
Cristina is an advocate of women’s health, and in 2010 Cristina launched Giving Wings in Stockholm, Sweden. The foundation’s work is focused on women and girl’s education and healthcare with a concentration in East Africa and South East Asia. She is an active board member of Afripads and a founding member of the Maverick Collective. Cristina is also a founding partner at Influence Film, supporting the production of feature length documentary films and growing new audiences for them through Influence Film Club.
