Who is The Workroom?

Meet Carolin Gomulia

Carolin Gomulia is a seasoned strategist, who has honed her skills in the government- and non-profit sectors. From 2007 to 2010, she led the implementation of the Western Cape Social Transformation Programme, located in the Office of the Premier of South Africa’s Western Cape Province, after which she joined the Institute for Justice and Reconciliation, heading up the strategy, fundraising and communications units.

During her tenure at IJR, she formalised the organisation’s strategy-, fundraising-, and communications- capacities, which contributed to the organisation’s professionalization, and a resultant growth in its revenue streams. Carolin, who speaks fluent English, German and Spanish, holds a Master’s degree in Development Studies (University of the Western Cape, South Africa), and another in Development Management (Ruhr University Bochum, Germany). She has also completed the Certificate Course in Business Analysis from the Faculty Training Institute in Cape Town in 2014.

She is deeply committed and passionate about social justice and transformation. Carolin is a German national with organic familial links to Indonesia. She is therefore both a literal and figurative citizen of the world.
