Episode 4: A Conversation with Michele Sumilas, USAID

In this next episode of Goalmakers we hear all about the recent and upcoming changes to USAID under the Biden / Harris administration. Lots of changes! At our annual conference in December of 2021, Kristen Dailey, Executive Director of Global Washington, interviewed Michele Sumilas - the Assistant to the Administrator at USAID. Michele talks about how USAID is committed to new ways of doing their work, the shift in their priorities given the changing geo-political landscape, and how they are increasing focus on partnerships, gender equity, shifting leadership to local actors, DEI, and a whole lot more.
