Fernande Raine

Founder/CEO of Got History?

Fernande Raine, the Founder of Got History?, is led by a lifelong conviction that history can be fuel for a new, inclusive democratic culture. She obtained her History PhD from Yale, and early in her career worked as a consultant with McKinsey and Innosight. She ran the Human Rights Center at Harvard’s Kennedy School, and launched and led the “Measurement in Human Rights” project. She also launched five programs (including Western Europe programs) during 11 years as an intrapreneur at Ashoka, and co-led the research effort into systems change leadership. Fernande learned history in a German high school in the 1980s, as if the future of civilization depended on it. She then became a democracy “missionary” in Eastern Europe after the fall of the Berlin wall.
