Ellen Goldstein, the World Bank’s Country Director for the Western Balkans, will share valuable insights on the tasks of the World Bank, their program in the Western Balkans, as well as information on career opportunities within the World Bank Group.

Ms. Goldstein is responsible for leading the dialogue on economic reform with the six countries of the Western Balkans, developing the World Bank’s country strategies, managing the World Bank portfolio, coordinating with partners, and engaging in outreach on economic growth and poverty reduction in the Western Balkans. Prior to this position, Ms. Goldstein was the World Bank’s Director for Bangladesh and Nepal. She has spent over 30 years as a development practitioner, specializing in collective leadership and results-based management and monitoring for the World Bank, African Development Bank and USAID.
