Lul, focuses on SDG16 – Peace for all, one of the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals 2030 (UNSDG2030).  She draws on her unique background of over three decades of leadership, influence at major corporations in international trade and the energy sector.

Dr. Seyoum’s passion for sustainable human rights drives her to engage in fighting persecution, injustice and abuse that is tearing the fabric of society. She consistently raises awareness on the causes surrounding forced mass migrations. Her efforts have been focused on the plight of refugees in their exodus from their country of origin and transit, in her effort to do so Lul consults with members of Parliament, policy makers and organisations including UNHCR, International Organisation for Migration, Medicines Sans Frontiers, Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch and Migrant Voice Network.

To positively impact the lives of emerging leaders, she partners with Initiatives of Change-IofC and its Sustainable Communities Programme to host training sessions on dialogue facilitation, trust building, reconciliation, capacity building programmes, emotional intelligence and leadership.

Lul is also the Co-Director and Co-Chair of United Against Inhumanity where she is engaged in its mission to give a voice to those who have suffered the inhumanity of war and forced displacement and those who struggle for a chance to re-build their lives in dignity and full enjoyment of their rights.
