Administrator Samantha Power joined USAID last week, committing to serve alongside thousands of Agency employees as a powerful force for good in the world. And she immediately got to work: reviewing the Agency’s COVID-19 relief efforts; honoring journalists on World Press Freedom Day; launching our Northern Triangle Task Force focused on curbing irregular migration from El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras; signing USAID’s new Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion Strategic Plan; and highlighting USAID’s support for girls education at the G7 Foreign and Development Ministerial. Power pledged to deploy America’s global leadership to address challenges where USAID can make an impact and “elevate the humanity of our foreign policy.” Follow Power on Twitter @PowerUSAID to keep track of our work and her vision for USAID.
