Senior Director of International Programs
"From an early age, I believed in the value of service. Oxfam’s very ethos, of working on sustainable and systemic solutions to social justice issues, fit with what is a natural inclination for me. I need to know I am making a difference, and serving others. Oxfam provides me with one of the best and most influential platforms to do this."
Vice President for Policy and Advocacy
"I am at Oxfam because it works harder than any other organization I know to link the fight for global justice to local truths. We are a distinctive NGO because we do so much policy, advocacy, and campaigning. We are a different kind of 'idea leader' because we work so closely with communities around the world. On our best days, we bring it all together."
