CEO of Connective Impact, Joanne Sonenshine, has more than 15 years of experience partnering with global organizations as a partnerships and fundraising adviser. Her network spans Europe, Africa, Asia, Latin America, United States and across international development priority topic areas. As a conduit and connector, with the unique ability to translate development “speak” into business “speak,” Joanne is bringing her best resources, connections, and lessons learned to the Global Funding + Partnerships Community.
USAID's New Partnerships Initiative (NPI) builds upon multiple decades of high-level USAID efforts to shift development decision-making and implementation to more locally based organizations. In support of the new Administration’s priorities around sustainable and inclusive development, NPI is working to provide clearer and simpler methods for new and diverse organizations to partner with USAID.
This process involves rethinking the kinds of relationships promoted by the Agency between its implementing partners and the local populations affected by their work.
Arjun Tasker, NPI Portfolio Manager, will share insights on USAID’s latest approaches to elevating the voices of local partners in development.
