  1. Raymond C. Offenheiser

    President, Oxfam America

    "Oxfam America distinguishes itself because we ask the right questions. We ask hard questions. Not just of the US government, corporations, and political leaders in the countries where we work—but of our partners around the globe and, most important, of ourselves. We also pursue answers vigorously and develop innovative approaches to reducing poverty."

  2. Stephanie Kurzina

    Vice President for Development and Communications

    “Only an organization that has worked for decades on the root causes of poverty can understand how interrelated poverty and the rights of women are. I’ve always been passionate about women’s rights and human rights and working at Oxfam allows me to fulfill that every day.”

  3. Paul O'Brien

    Vice President for Policy and Campaigns

    "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."

  4. Darius Teter

  9. Rachel Hayes

    Senior Director of Communications & Community Engagement

    "My parents stood up to a government run amok, when my father refused to sign a loyalty oath in 1954. Helping others claim their rights is a personal mission for me. Where better to serve that mission than at Oxfam?"

  10. Ashley Tsongas

    Deputy to the Vice President of Programs

    "Oxfam believes that poverty is usually, at its root, about imbalances of power, that change is possible, and that solutions require good ideas, courage and persistence. It works. There is no better feeling than getting momentum going behind brave people with good ideas and seeing change unfold.”

    Meet Ashley Tsongas
  11. Barbara Durr

    Deputy to the Vice President of Policy and Campaigns

    "Since my first picket line at 15 years of age, I have always wanted to make the world a better place. Oxfam’s focus on poverty, rights and injustice makes it my choice to fight for that better world."
