I’m honoured to join Wasafiri’s Board as a Non-Executive Member.
For the past few years, I’ve had the privilege to work with Wasafiri – and I’ve come to deeply appreciate this diverse team of people committed to helping leaders, communities and institutions tackle some of the world’s most complex problems.
It’s also an organisation whose values I share – including its commitment to impact and responsible business practices and role among global movements such as the B-Corp and UN Global Compact.
I’m excited for my new role as Non-Executive Board Member; I see it as a unique platform to a) leverage my passion for working with communities as co-investors in their own peacebuilding processes; b) share my lived experience on issues of community security and governance in Africa to shape both policy and practice, and c) work across the philanthropy sector to increase the impact of collective effort and engagement.
It’ll be quite the challenge, but I have a great team around me!
