Best Public Service Leader (Examplary) Karen Shippey 1

Karen Shippey

Environmental Affairs and Development Planning: Chief Directorate: Environmental Sustainability

Karen Shippey has often spoken about being a public servant and how that means one must serve the citizen and fight for service delivery for all, in every aspect of your mandate.

The strong work ethic of Karen is visible, and it is notable that much of her gender and human rights learning, and even programme development, has been undertaken after hours because she ensures that her core technical role must not be negatively affected but be an addition to her work.

Karen’s commitment and dedication speaks of selfless and true servant leadership.
