Anne is the Chief Innovation Officer at Evidence Action, a global development organization dedicated to scaling cost-effective interventions backed by rigorous evidence. In this role, she leads the organization’s efforts to “incubate for scale” promising, evidence-based innovations through a process of designing, prototyping, rigorously testing, and delivering measurably impactful, cost-effective programs that are ready for implementation at scale by Evidence Action and our partners. Before joining Evidence Action, Anne led Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) at the U.S. Agency for International Development’s Global Development Lab. DIV is USAID’s venture capital-inspired, tiered, evidence-based innovation fund that invests comparatively small amounts in relatively unproven concepts and continues to support and scale only those that prove they work. Anne has worked across the private, public, and social sectors on evidence and innovation in government and international development, supporting the start-up of Innovations for Poverty Action in Kenya; advising companies, governments, and philanthropies as a consultant at McKinsey & Co.; advising the former Deputy Secretary at the U.S. State Department as an Obama Administration appointee; and, serving on the board of IDinsight. She has a JD and a Master in Public Administration in International Development (MPA/ID) from Harvard and a BA from Princeton.
