Rebecca has spent the best part of 25 years researching, designing, implementing, and evaluating development programs that aim to achieve positive social impact for the world's poorest and most excluded populations.
In the course of her work, she has led multi-disciplinary teams in Africa, Asia, and the Pacific, and trained staff from a wide range of NGOs, bilateral and multilateral organizations, and the private sector. Rebecca is particularly passionate about working with adolescent girls (even more so now that she has one of her own) and young women, and on economic empowerment and shifting social norms. She is currently the Technical Director for the SPRING Accelerator, and the Girl Metrics Specialist for the Girl Effect Accelerator.
