We are excited to welcome Tess McEnery to the Global Center’s Board of Directors.

Tess is Executive Director of the Project on Middle East Democracy, a nonpartisan, nonprofit organization dedicated to examining how genuine democracies can develop in the Middle East and North Africa. She has over 15 years of experience working on conflict prevention, stabilization, fragile states, elections, political transitions, and the strategic use of foreign assistance and foreign policy. Previously, she was twice Director for Democracy and Human Rights at the National Security Council and served in senior positions at the Department of State and U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).

“We are thrilled to have Tess join our Board. Tess’ energy and significant career experience in policy and programming will bring important depth to the Board’s support of the Global Center’s work to deliver innovative, equitable, and evidence-based approaches to addressing violent extremism and advancing human rights.” – David McGowan, Chair of the Global Center’s Board of Directors

“I am thrilled to join the board of the Global Center and sound the clarion call that respect for human rights is crucial to preventing and countering violent extremism. As a strategy and process nerd, I look forward to supporting the Center’s efforts to make the case to funders, partners, and policymakers that an ounce of violence prevention is worth a pound of cure.” – Tess McEnery
