Washington, DC, February 21, 2021—Pathfinder International is pleased to announce that Biniam Gebre has joined our Board of Directors. Biniam has experience building public-sector partnerships and leading complex modernization initiatives with government partners.
As managing director at Accenture Federal Services, Mr. Gebre provides advisory services to government clients, focusing on data analysis, advanced technologies, and artificial intelligence. Before joining Accenture, he was a partner at Oliver Wyman, where he led financial service companies and government agencies on risk analytics, organizational design, and culture change. His experience at the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development during the Obama administration gave him an in-depth perspective on how to leverage new technologies to help the government better interact with and serve citizens.
“As we seek to diversify and strengthen our board by adding voices from the places we work, we are honored to welcome Biniam,” said Roslyn Watson, Pathfinder International Board Chair. “As a leader in the private sector and government, as well as a refugee from Eritrea, Biniam’s life experiences bring a strong perspective to the vital work of Pathfinder’s mission in his home country, particularly in delivering sexual and reproductive health services in humanitarian settings.”
Pathfinder International is a sexual and reproductive health and rights organization. Since 1957, we have empowered women to make informed choices about whether and when to have children. We collaborate closely with our partners around the world to address the unmet need for modern contraception, offer life-saving maternal and newborn care, and reach the most vulnerable populations, including those who have been affected by conflict, climate change, and natural disasters. Taken together, our programs empower millions of women, men, and young people to choose their own paths forward.
