Ginger (Virginia) Paque

IG Programmes
Ms Virginia (Ginger) Paque was born in the United States, but lived in Venezuela for more than 35 years. An educator and administrator by profession, she has 25 years’ experience in business and manufacturing systems consulting. As a board member of the United Nations Association of Venezuela, her work as the Venezuelan member of the World Federation of United Nations Associations Task Force on WSIS brought her into the world of IG during the Geneva PrepComs. She is active in Civil Society discussions on IG, and served as IG Caucus co-coordinator for two years. She is currently IGCBP director for DiploFoundation, enjoying the opportunity to extend online capacity building programmes to developing countries in different languages. The research and implementation of e-participation and online inclusion possibilities for global policy processes is another important priority area, with concrete applications in remote participation for global IG meetings such as the IGF. She recently completed her Master thesis in Contemporary Diplomacy on the importance of IG as a new diplomatic priority.
