Rachel co-founded GlobalGiving UK and leads the organisation to make a genuine and sustained difference in people’s lives. She started GlobalGiving in the UK because of her belief that the development aid sector needs radical change: change that puts people’s dignity and dreams first. She believes that accountability is about building trusted partnerships between people and ensuring enabling conditions and structures are built and designed with dynamic accountability at the heart. She is passionate about challenging the status quo and exploring new ways of working. Previously, Rachel worked for local government, in retail sector marketing, and as an archaeologist specialising in later prehistory. She holds an MA from Cardiff University in archaeology and a post-graduate diploma in management from Birkbeck University.
