Leadership is now more than ever about empowerment and bringing more actors to the table — not fewer, Shawn Baker, director of nutrition at the Gates Foundation, told Devex at this year’s European Development Days in Brussels.
Eighty-four percent of respondents identified that in 10 years, the technology, skills and approaches used by those in this sector will be significantly different than they are today — results that were reflected in conversations with high-level leaders at EDD.
Learning is “two ways” now, and the focus is more on helping small organizations build their own systems, according to Kaday Mansaray Sibanda, regional director for Voluntary Service Overseas in Southern Africa.
In her role as associate editor, Kelli Rogers helps to shape Devex content around leadership, professional growth and careers for professionals in international development, humanitarian aid and global health. As the manager of Doing Good, one of Devex's highest-circulation publications, she is constantly on the lookout for the latest staffing changes, hiring trends and tricks for recruiting skilled local and international staff for aid projects that make a difference. Kelli has studied or worked in Spain, Costa Rica and Kenya.
