This includes contributing to the strategic visioning of these websites as knowledge management and communications platforms as well as overseeing the work of technology and content teams maintaining and/or updating the websites.
  • Oversee the development and the implementation of knowledge management and communications strategies for the DEVELOP project. Adjust the strategies as necessary based on data, feedback and continuous reviews of CKM tools and approaches. 
  • Support the Center for Education and other USAID operating units in utilizing CKM tools and methods in support of their broader vision and purpose.
  • Oversee and contribute to the strategy, design, development, and dissemination of content to inform, equip and engage the USAID education workforce through knowledge and communication products for internal and external audiences.
