Kristin Hansen is the CEO & Founder of Hansen&Partner, the ELLA International Lesbian Festival and President of the ELLA Global Community Association.
She has a degree in Tourism and Hotel Management and worked internationally at luxury hotels chains like Kempinksi, Bayerischer Hof and St Regis Hotels, and has always been a humanitarian at heart with a strong interest in women’s and development issues. In Senegal, where she spent a lot of time growing up, she was inspired a lot and serves as First Deputy for the local aid organisation Aide Gandiole.
Since over 12 years she dedicated her career to creating a proper and quality oriented offer for lesbian women and help companies and destinations willing to be positioned as lesbian-friendly, through event organising and LGBT consultation.
Her new project ELLA Global Community is an association committed to promoting the lesbian cause, as well as for all women that fall outside the socially accepted definition of gender identity and sexual orientation – including bisexual women. Currently actions are being held in Latin America in collaboration with various international NGOs and the local government.
After a great deal of travels and different life spans spent in England, France and Switzerland, Kristin is now based in Mallorca, Spain and Munich, Germany. She is fluent in English, German, Spanish and French.
