Kadiatou joined the Mission in 2005 where she served as an Administrative Assistant to the Director of the Electoral Division.

Prior to joining the Mission, Kadiatou worked for the United Nations Development Programme (UNDP) in Mali.

A graduate of the École des Hautes Études Pratiques in Mali, Kadiatou held an undergraduate degree in Personnel Administration. She was working on completing a Masters Degree at the Université du Mali.
