Claire has worked around the world with international development and humanitarian relief organizations with a focus on people affected by disasters, refugees and internally displaced populations. Over the course of her career, Claire has developed expertise in program management, institutional fundraising and capacity building. In her last position, Claire managed the Shifting the Power consortium implemented by six international nonprofit organizations to support local and national NGO networks in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Congo, Ethiopia and Kenya.
