Role: Senior Director, Innovation Hubs

Team: Women's Economic Empowerment team

Profile:

I am based in Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam, from where since January 2018 I am leading CARE USA’s global work to develop more systematic ways of delivering poverty and social injustice interventions. Examples include: working with CARE Philippines on a new innovation to design new humanitarian relief programmes with local communities; with CARE Egypt on social accountability; and with CARE West Bank Gaza on resilient market systems. I am also continuing to support CARE’s women’s economic empowerment team based at CARE International UK.

I joined CARE International UK in September 2006 to set up their Private Sector Engagement Team, which initiated a range of global partnerships and sustainable development initiatives for CARE. In the time since, I have led several internal initiatives aimed at improving CARE’s programme quality and global connectivity. Most recently this has included the establishment of a new area of programming called Resilient Market Systems, analysing how to improve CARE’s women’s economic empowerment work within the context of humanitarian crises.

Prior to joining CARE, I spent 10 years in London, working in public, private and non-profit sector roles, largely specialising in corporate communications, fundraising and marketing functions.

Increasingly seen as integral to sustainable development, the private sector is carving out a more prominent role for itself in a post-2015 MDG agenda.
