Senior Director of Regional 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."
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."
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."
Vice President for Programs
"I spent nearly two decades fighting the symptoms of poverty more than its root causes, and only in Oxfam have I found a community of people who understand the difference and act on it with passion, humor, and smarts."
