Remembering Michaela Bergman

28 Nov 2023

We are sad to hear of the passing of Michaela Bergman, whose dedicated work in social development impacted many lives across the globe.

Michaela was born in London and attended Queen’s College, London for her secondary education, before studying law at King’s College, London in 1983, and achieving an MSc in Social Anthropology from the LSE in 1995.

Michaela began her career at the Institute of Child Health at Great Ormond Street, and her incredible work in social development took her to over 40 countries across the world. She joined the European Bank for Reconstruction and Development in 2005, and went on to lead their first ever strategy for the promotion of gender equality.

She is remembered by friend Itziar Perkins as “a clever, sharp-witted woman who had a zest for life and a great sense of fun, someone who was loyal and generous to her friends and deeply committed to her clients and stakeholders”. You can read Itziar’s full tribute here.

Michaela will be greatly missed by her parents, her brother David, her niece Laleh, and nephew Zizou. To read about Michaela’s huge impact on friends and colleagues, or to leave your own memories, visit this online Remembrance Book.
