San Francisco

Caitlin supports companies in operationalizing respect for human rights across their organizations and value chain. She brings a strong, collaborative spirit and hands-on approach in developing and implementing strategies and governance, due diligence, trainings, and engagement mechanisms to effectively manage human rights risks. 

She has led human rights and social performance teams for several energy and extractives assets, including for Rio Tinto and IFC investments. These roles have honed her “boots to boardroom” approach for combining technical expertise with multi-stakeholder engagement and a practical understanding of business drivers. She brings over ten years of experience working with private sector energy, extractives, the financial sector, technology companies, government, and human rights NGOs. Much of Caitlin's career has been spent internationally, specifically in East Africa and Southeast Asia.

Caitlin holds a Master's in Public Affairs from Princeton University and a Bachelor’s in Economics and Environmental Studies from Dartmouth College. She speaks English and French and is on the leadership team of the global Social Practice Forum.
