GLOBAL ICON: For Olivia ‘Babsy’ Grange, being elected a Vice President of the 40th Session of the UNESCO General Conference brings an opportunity “to serve and ensure that the voices of countries from the Caribbean and Latin America, as well as small island developing states, are heard and will benefit from UNESCO’s work.” Convening every two years, the General Conference brings together UNESCO’s 193 members to decide on the policies and work of the organization. Grange’s appointment comes on the heels of her two-year stint as Chair of the UNESCO Committee on Conventions and Reparations. She is also Vice Chair of the Culture Committee of the Organization of American States (OAS).
