(Washington DC, May 12, 2021) EG Justice is delighted to welcome Dr. Juanita Olaya and Dr. Joseph R. Kraus, as the two newest members of its board of directors.
Dr. Juanita Olaya has over two decades of experience in the areas of sustainability, human rights and anti-corruption across the world. Based in Berlin, she works with a wide range of international and national institutions, the private sector, NGOs and community associations.

Juanita is a member of the International Expert Panel (IEP) at the Open Government Partnership (OGP)’s Review Mechanism, has served as Chair and Vice-Chair of the UNCAC Coalition and as a member of the International Review Panel of the World Bank’s Stolen Asset Recovery Initiative (StAR), among other boards.
Dr. Joseph Kraus is Policy Director at The ONE Campaign, a global campaigning organization working to end extreme poverty in Africa. Prior to joining ONE, Joseph was the Program & Development Director for EG Justice. He is a Trustee for Publish What You Pay – United Kingdom, and sits on the Steering Committees of OpenOwnership and Publish What You Pay – United States.
