Flavia Sevald has been the CEO of the Jerusalem Institute of Justice since 2014. She joined JIJ after many years of successfully working as a manger in high-tech.
Flavia oversees all JIJ activities in Israel and in the US. Flavia is passionate about universal human rights and believes it is possible to influence society in a positive way, one person at a time.
Managing an NGO such as JIJ allows Flavia to have a voice at the highest levels of government and to serve at-risk sectors of society. As a woman, guiding her team is natural and intuitive. Flavia’s style of servant leadership builds trust, creates a supportive environment, and encourages everyone to achieve their best. These are traits that she carries over outside the office as well, in her free time as a goalie in a women's soccer league. Flavia is originally from Uruguay and has lived in Israel for more than 30 years. CEO Statement
