Martine Bolsens-Peetermans

Lifting up seemingly everyday people with audacious dreams

I believe that we are all connected to each other, and that we all hold a moral and human responsibility to each other. I believe education is the most powerful tool in empowering communities to break through the constraints that are holding them back, allowing individuals to envision a new future in which each has the opportunity to thrive in a dignified life. I believe in giving back and reaching out, and that there is richness in diversity. I am an advocate, a bridge-builder and a connector. I belong to a global network of passionate agents of change and feel privileged to be a link in the chain of positive global transformation.

I proudly serve on the board of a variety of organizations and non-profits:

  • Santa Clara University, Santa Clara, USA
  • Destiny Reflection, Kolkata, India
  • Amici Lovanienses, San Francisco, USA

I am a graduate of the 2012 Women Leaders for the World program, hosted by Global Women’s Leadership Network at Santa Clara University.

Bachelors of Arts, Karel de Grote Hogeschool, Berchem, Belgium.
