Forum for Dialogue continues to grow. As our established programs keep on expanding, and we launch new successful initiatives, we had reached a point where it was necessary to separate the day-to-day operations from long-term planning. Hence, over the last two months, we have undergone a series of fundamental changes in how our work is organized. Zuzanna Radzik, who had been the Executive Board Member, replaced Michał Bilewicz as Forum’s Vice President. Michał stepped down to take on a new role as the Chair of Forum’s Scholarly Advisory Board that will be formed by next year. Zuza’s place on the Board was filled by Jakub Petelewicz, previously Forum’s Director of Education. Andrzej Folwarczny continues as the President and CEO of Forum for Dialogue, leading the Executive Board.
While the Executive Board will focus on long-term planning, relationship-building, and monitoring the success of our mission, Olga Kaczmarek was appointed for the newly established position of Forum’s Director General to take charge of overseeing our programs and daily operations, as well as representing Forum for Dialogue in Poland and abroad. As Director General Olga has the support of Monika Halaczek, who became the Deputy Director General. In her new capacity, Monika is responsible for further increase in Forum’s effectiveness and professionalization.
