CHS Alliance welcomes new staff to support its members

We have made some changes to the roles and responsibilities of the CHS Alliance team, to better meet the needs of our member organisations. Here are our four teams, with some new members of staff: 

The newly established Programmes team will work with our members on addressing the thematic challenges in meeting the Core Humanitarian Standard on Quality and Accountability (CHS). Initially, this team will focus on Accountability to Affected Populations (AAP), Protection from Sexual Exploitation and Abuse (PSEA), and People Management.

We welcome Joanne Dunn will lead this team. She brings a wide range of experience in PSEA, Gender Based Violence and child protection, and will be based in London starting in March. She is joined  by Miranda Brown, who has a strong PSEA and human rights background, as our new PSEA Manager based in Geneva. Genevieve Cyvoct will be the third member of the team, focusing on AAP work.

Bonaventure Sokpoh, Head of Policy, Advocacy and Learning, will oversee policy issues related to the CHS and accompanying training. He will be supported by Karen Glisson as our Training Manager and Adrien Muratet, focusing on all aspects of verification. Please do be in touch with them on any issues related to your training of verification needs.

Rosa Argent is another new member of staff joining us as Head of Membership and Communications. Rosa will be based in Geneva and supported by the great work of Ann Vaessen and Balint Hudecz. They will be busy over the next few months working on new communication tools, including a new-look website. You will continue to receive the monthly updates from this team and they are available to answer any membership enquiries you have. 

Patrick Hartmann continues as our Head of Finance and Administration, supported by Hélène Maillet-Maghdessian and Audrey Rudny. This team is your point of call on all administration-related issues relating to the Alliance.
