On Working at FSG

“As a global health grantee in Rwanda and Zimbabwe in the 1990s, I often wondered how funders planned and made decisions. I knew that these decisions had big consequences as they determined the choice in grantees, tools and approaches used, budgets, messaging – essentially every facet of the change-making process. Years later, I feel privileged to bring my mix of consulting and on-the-ground experiences to help the ‘shapers of social change’ make better and more informed choices. I respect FSG’s ideas, quality of leadership, people, and values. Our commitment to impact, trust and collaboration, authentic engagement, and innovative problem solving lends vitality to our work.”
