Niels Bak is a recent alumna from Kaospilot, Denmark, where he received a diploma in leadership within the fields of process, project and business design. His projects spanned from conscious consumerism and big data, over blockchain in business and political campaigning to working with the well-being of students in a post-pandemic world. His final project was the foundation for a thinktank for minorities, exploring the cross-sections between several intersectionalities, using his privilege as a lens to circumnavigate the spectrum of interconnected issues that different minorities represent. His professional background is a tapestry of NGO management positions, within the fields of refugees, anti-terror, conflict resolution, psycho-social support, vulnerable youth and mentoring programs, often with a fundraising, awareness or direct approach. In his free time, Niels manages the Social Sailing Foundation, enjoys working out, plays dungeons & dragons and loves 1920s Bauhaus lamps.
