    “My career has led me to work in some of the most challenging parts of the world, seeing first-hand the impact of poverty, injustice, war and disasters and I’ve always been impressed by Oxfam’s commitment to facing tough challenges with high impact solutions. Today, the fight against global poverty and injustice is more relevant than ever; I am honored to lead the Oxfam team through this next chapter.”

    “Oxfam’s focus on building power and bringing the voices of marginalized communities into the political debate is what draws me here. Being able to engage with the experiences, challenges, and hopes of communities—globally and domestically—that have been impacted by the injustices of poverty is a gift. The work is hard, yet the impact can be significant.”

    “With nearly one-third of the global population living in poverty, I am proud and honored to serve Oxfam’s mission to end the injustice of poverty by addressing its root causes and the immediate humanitarian needs locally.

  5. Dr. Tawanda Mutasah

    Vice President of Global Partnerships and Impact

    “Across the world, I have seen with my own eyes the power of solidarity, opportunity, and protection of individuals and communities against vulnerability. I joined Oxfam America precisely because the struggle for justice and inclusion for all––and against the indignity of poverty––is even more urgent today, and my own sensibilities will always bestride the highways I have traversed as a man and the rough streets that reared me as a boy.”

    "My commitment to Oxfam is rooted in my deep respect for the programs we undertake around the world. I have always admired the sheer audacity of our mission: to identify poverty as a man-made injustice that can only be eradicated through systemic change.”

  7. Grace Strome

    Chief of Staff

    “In a world as rich as ours, no one should be living in poverty. I’m honored to be working with a team of smart, mission-driven people not afraid of asking hard questions to solve the big problems facing our world today.”

  8. Ashley Tsongas

    Chief Strategy Officer

    "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.”
