Country: Albania
Created: Nov 30, 2010

This year, IPMA-HR participated in the Hope Fellowship Program-a program established by the National Albanian American Council (NAAC) and funded by USAID to strengthen the role of women in policy and decision-making in the Balkans. The program operates in Kosovo, empowering women leaders to create collaborative, sustainable, positive change in government, civil society, and business that strengthen the democratic process and promotes prosperity for all peoples in the country. NAAC's aim is to contribute to the development of the Balkans by offering concrete support in the form of educational opportunities and tools to foster democratic participation.

Burbuqe Graj├ževci, a Hope Fellow who hopes to one day establish a public sector human resources association in her home country of Kosovo, spent some time with IPMA-HR during her Oct. 8 - Nov. 20 stay in the United States, in order to find out what it takes to run a public sector human resources association.

Graj├ževciis a human resource officer for the Privatization Agency of Kosovo, responsible for recruitment and selection of staff and developing policies and procedures for the HR department. Previously, Burbuqe worked for the Student's Services Center LINK, an OSCE project, as a coordinator/career counselor. Grajcevci is currently pursuing a master's degree in research from Prishtina University, where she holds a bachelor's degree in psychology.
