Photo de Claire Moretto Dear friends,

We would like to inform you that Claire Moretto is leaving Docip after 5 years on our team.

During this period, Claire was actively involved in the Indigenous cause, notably by managing publications, but also by organizing several training sessions for Indigenous delegates.

We thank her for her work and for her commitment, and we wish her all the best in her career going forward.
