Veronica Mwaba

Veronica Zulu Mwaba is the executive director of Dziwa Science and Technology Trust, a nonprofit organization that aims to promote science communication.

Her 15 years of experience in media and administrative work include serving at the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa, where she coordinated media coverage for Biotechnology and Seed programs, and as a communications manager for Land O’Lakes Inc./USAID. Veronica holds a master’s degree in media, communication and PR from the University of Leicester, UK, and a bachelor’s in PR from Cavendish University, Zambia.

Her experiences have taught her that public engagement and media coverage in science require message delivery in a manner it is easily understood. She therefore aims to contribute to science communication that bridges the gap and ultimately benefits communities.
