Joan Parker // President and CEO // Counterpart International
Today we sit down for a fantastic conversation with Joan Parker of Counterpart International. For the past 50 years, Counterpart has worked on the ground in 27 countries, empowering individuals to improve their communities and governments. Dr. Parker uses the example of our fabulously fake nonprofit Bunnies for Bethesda to illustrate some essential elements of growing an organization. Join us!
Joan Parker is a true believer in the power of communities to create solutions to even their most vexing challenges. She joined Counterpart International as CEO in 2010 and hasn’t looked back: across 27 countries, the team is coaching 3,500 organizations and transforming as many communities in terms of health, nutrition, education, good governance, and more.
The Counterpart Network partners with social investors who strengthen local communities’ leaders and organizations – solution creators who build inclusive and durable futures in which their people thrive.
