The idea for Nations Global Consulting was first conceived in a small chalet in Geneva, Switzerland in spring of 2017.

Christen Kramer was visiting a good friend, and listening to her describe her work as a UN Liaison at the Human Rights Council. She learned that any NGOs globally, within certain criteria, were eligible to access UN high-level events to advocate for their rights, equality and dignity.

As she leaned out of the window of the chalet, listening to what UN Consultative Status meant for NGOs on the ground, Christen realized in that moment that she would create NGC.

Christen knew that working to get NGOs access to high-level international meetings and councils is essential. She knew that NGO access and intervention in UN proceedings make a difference to the outcome, and to the issues represented at the UN. NGO involvement keeps the UN more equitable, more honest, and more accessible. And so that day March, NGC was born.

Today NGC spans the globe with consultants and NGOs working in and being represented out of 4 continents- and growing. We believe in equity, empathy and excellence, and are here to help shine light and create access for the hard work of civil society across the world.
