Katarzyna Batko-Tołuc
Katarzyna Batko-Tołuć is actively involved in increasing transparency within public life, accountability in governance, and in enforcing the idea of civic oversight.

She works through the Association of Leaders of Local Civic Groups – a unique nation-wide organization formed by several local grassroots initiatives, which focuses on making citizens aware of their rights to be informed, to influence the decision-making processes, and to make authorities accountable. This organization also works as a Freedom of Information watchdog addressing all levels of governance, while serving as a support hub for all watchdog initiatives in Poland.

Katarzyna also analyzes the impact of advocacy efforts on the sustainability of civic initiatives and on the ethical standards of Polish public life. In 2009, she was recognized by Ashoka, an international community of innovators in the public sphere; in 2010, she was named a Rising Talent by the Women’s Forum for the Economy and Society; and in 2011, she was recognized with an award from the Polish President.
