Dorothée Lintner, Directrice générale de l'organisation humanitaire Bioforce. Portrait réalisé en février 2022 au siège de Bioforce à Lyon-Vénissieux.Dorothée has devoted her entire professional career to learning and transmission. She started out as a teacher-researcher in French literature at university, then became director of learning and training for the ENGIE Group, before joining Bioforce.

Making humanitarian training increasingly accessible remains the ambition of Bioforce and its new director: “I strongly believe in the need for learning in all environments, in all contexts, for all audiences, and this is of course particularly true for humanitarian aid: do everything possible to ensure that people are fully qualified before they leave on assignment.

In order to train even more people in the field, the Bioforce team will continue to develop operations in crisis-affected zones (14 countries covered in 2022) and will increase the digitalisation and modularity of its training courses: “Bioforce is a benchmark organisation for training and developing the skills of those involved in humanitarian work. Bioforce’s singular nature is remarkable, its mission is rare, and I will put all my energy into enabling it to continue this mission. The accessibility and adaptability of training are major issues, to ensure that we meet precisely the needs of learners.”
