Today is my last day as Project Assistant with GISF.
I’d like to take this opportunity to give a big thank you to the GISF Secretariat for being a great team to work with. I have been amazed at the amount of support, kindness, and dedication from the team since I began as a recent graduate in March 2020. It has been great to see the work GISF puts into improving the safety and security of aid workers as we connect humanitarians from over 130 organizations around the world regularly, as crisis can occur at a moment’s notice.
During my time at GISF, I’ve supported 4 global forums, 3 of which were in-person in Washington, D.C., completed a Hostile Environment Awareness Training (HEAT) with World Vision, contributed to the GISF Blog, supported the new GISF Podcast series: ‘Inclusive Security’, worked alongside the communications team, and have aided with many other GISF events. I’ve also taken this time to complete a Social Media Manager Certificate program with Agorapulse and Certificate programs with DisasterReady.
Given the small size of the GISF Secretariat, it has been a rewarding experience to be able to work on many different projects and teams. Thank you to GISF and the network!
My next journey begins at the end of the month as I start my new role with the Federal Government. If you would like to keep in touch, you can connect with me on LinkedIn here.
