Juror Profile

Greta Spatz
Women with disabilities - the accomplishments in their individual categories and their valuable commitment towards an inclusive society are able to receive the visibility and recognition they deserve through the Her Abilities Award. I hope this will inspire many more women to do the same. Being a member of the jury is a great honor and an even greater joy for me!
