    USAID's ambitious new targets for locally-led development have generated much conversation across the sector. Although these commitments appear promising, many have asked the question: where do we go from here?

    In our new webinar series, "Locally-Led," we will explore this question and work to operationalize commitments to locally-led development.

    In this first installment, experts from across the sector will unpack USAID Administrator Samantha Power's vision for global development and provide insights on how the sector can collaborate to turn these policy propositions into reality.

    This webinar is open to everyone so please share widely with your networks! Register and share:

    Our CEO, Dr. Christine Sow, will be moderating this exciting discussion with our panel of experts:
    • Professor Gavin Churchyard, CEO, The Aurum Institute
    • James Randall Tift, International Development Consultant, Oxford House Senior Associate, and former USAID Chief A&A Policy Officer
    • John McPhail, President and CEO, Partners of the Americas
    • Justin Fugle, Head of Policy, Plan International USA
