GLOBAL POLICY AND ADVOCACY MANAGER | GLOBAL POVERTY PROJECT

You’re currently working as a Global Policy and Advocacy Manager for the Global Poverty Project (GPP). What does it entail?   

Working on policy and advocacy campaigns for GPP is pretty varied. At the moment, my specific focus is on improving policies that can impact progress on gender equality and access to reproductive health, especially in the developing world. Specifically I’m building a campaign for the United Nations Population Fund to demonstrate visible support to governments for increased investment in the rights and needs of adolescents and youth in something called the Post-2015 Development Agenda. Elements that my team campaign on under this umbrella include crucial things like protection from violence, access to contraceptive services and youth participation in decision-making that affects them.

What do you do as US Country Director for the Global Poverty Project?

My job is to build a movement of people taking meaningful, timely actions that have huge policy implications for the extreme poor. We are working to see a world without extreme poverty by 2030, which involves zeroing in on policy areas where we can have great impact, partnering with NGOs doing incredible work on the ground in that particular policy arena, leveraging the voices of Global Citizens to achieve large scale wins for the world’s poor and building events such as the Global Citizen Festival where these wins can be announced and celebrated.
