Role: Knowledge Management and Communications Officer

Team: Inclusive Governance team

Profile:

I lead on communicating the impacts of CARE's Inclusive Governance work globally, coordinating a community of practice for sharing learning on how CARE delivers aid through inclusive governance. I am also responsible for supporting the design and implementation of CARE's global Inclusive Governance strategy. I joined CARE’s Inclusive Governance team in February 2015 having previously worked at international development consultancy Coffey International, supporting the development of governance, justice and social inclusion proposals for DFID, World Bank and European Commission.

Prior to this I worked and lived in Uganda, designing and delivering civil society capacity-building training to local community groups and NGO partners with the UK Department for International Development. I hold an MSc in Development Management from the London School of Economics, with specialisms in economic development policy, institutional reform, governance, and designing and implementing innovative inclusive social businesses.

One good thing I’ve read

Poor Economics by Abhijit Banerjee and Ester Duflo because they eschew grand generalisations about the secret of economic development. They explore how poor people in poor countries actually cope with their poverty and make choices: an important read for anyone working to develop robust strategies to improve the lives of the world’s poorest people. Why Nations Fail: The origins of power, prosperity and poverty by Daron Acemoglu and James Robinson is also a favourite that I constantly refer back to. Its core hypothesis - that to prosper, citizens need ‘inclusive institutions’ - resonates with CARE’s Inclusive Governance work.
