Here are the individuals taking over leadership at some of the biggest global development and humanitarian aid organizations.
Department for International Development
A day after Priti Patel resigned from her position as U.K. secretary of state for international development, Prime Minister Theresa May announced Patel’s replacement: Penny Mordaunt, the former minister of state for disabled people, health and work.
Mordaunt, who was first elected as member of parliament in 2010, has had quite a few breaks in her relatively young ministerial career. She was appointed in 2015 as minister of state for the armed forced, the first woman to have held the post. In 2016, just over a year into the role, she was appointed minister at the Department for Work and Pensions.
