Eva Grosman - CEO, Centre for Democracy & Peace Building

“Be Authentic and True to Yourself”

Eva is originally from Poland and based in Northern Ireland. She initiated the Polish Cultural Week and Polish Film Festival in Northern Ireland and is the inspiration and driving force behind TedXStormont. Eva co-founded the award-winning Unite against Hate campaign, challenging all forms of prejudice and hate crime. She has also been an independent member of the Policing and Community Safety Partnership in Belfast.

Q: Eva, what’s your story?
A: I came to the UK for two weeks holiday and stayed. Initially, I was intending to spend a year learning English. Over 20 years later I’m still here.

I often say that I was born in Poland, made in London, toughened up in Belfast and now I’m consolidating my experiences in Oxford.

Q: How did you get where you are today, and did anyone (or something) help you along the way?
A: I have been helped by many inspiring people in various stages of my life and my career. It’s like walking on the road to Emmaus: we are never alone. Sometimes we don’t fully appreciate the immense influence that certain people and experiences have had on our lives until we look back.

In my role as the Chief Executive of the Centre for Democracy and Peace Building I’m truly fortunate to work with some remarkable people, particularly my Chairman, Lord Alderdice – a man of profound insight, courage, integrity, loyalty and kindness... more
