How do we strengthen humanitarian leadership to make it fit for purpose? The international humanitarian sector needs a greater diversity of approaches, funding sources, and thinking to confront its rapidly changing landscape. Evidence highlights that diversity and inclusion in leadership is key to being able to address new and emergent challenges. Humanitarian Advisory Group is currently undertaking research to understand how diverse and inclusive leadership can contribute to tackling key challenges faced by the humanitarian system.
This workshop explored potential methodologies and approaches to conducting Humanitarian Advisory Group’s Diverse Humanitarian Leadership research under its Humanitarian Horizons program. It convened a range of representatives from international non-government organisations, the United Nations, the Red Cross Movement and the Australian Department of Foreign Affairs and Trade (DFAT).
