About Katelyn C. Jones, PhD

Katelyn Jones is the Women, Peace, and Security Fellow at the Chicago Council on Global Affairs and Public Fellow for the American Council of Learned Societies. Her research concerns gender politics in international organizations, and is especially focused on gender mainstreaming in policy formation and implementation.

At the Chicago Council, Katelyn has moderated and created content for high-level roundtables equity, diversity, and inclusion (EDI). She also writes white papers on institutions' EDI and prepares regular brownbag conversations on EDI for Council staff. Katelyn received three certificates in EDI training from the National Conference on Diversity Race and Learning in 2019.
