ALENA Pániková has stepped down from her post as executive director of the Open Society Foundation (OSF), although she will continue to contribute towards its further development, the TASR newswire reported on November 18.

The OSF Administrative Board will now launch an open selection process to find a new executive director, with financial director Martin Neupauer and communication manager Ľubica Stanek appointed to lead the foundation in the interim.

Pániková worked for the OSF since 1993 and became its executive director in 1995. Under her tenure, the OSF dealt with promotion of civic freedoms, equality of opportunities and has become one of the first NGOs to address the situation of excluded Roma communities, TASR wrote.
