Julie Rialet is Open Ownership’s Advocacy Associate. Working closely with the Data Engagement Manager Agustina de Luca, and Director of Policy and Advocacy Louise Russell-Prywata, Julie organises advocacy and capacity-building activities across OO’s programmes of work. OO’s advocacy aims to drive up international standards on beneficial ownership transparency (BOT), share our resources on how to implement BOT, and the evidence as to why doing so effectively, matters. An important strand of Julie's advocacy work is within the Opening Extractives programme.
Prior to joining Open Ownership, Julie worked for seven years supporting civil society and multilateral organisations with their political advocacy and programming to advance human rights across Africa, Asia and the Middle-East. She has also worked with a London-based consulting firm to support social leaders growing the reach and impact of their organisation.
She holds a Masters in Social Sciences from Sciences Po Rennes, France. She speaks fluent English, French and Italian and is currently based in Paris, France.
