Inclusive Development International is delighted to announce that Tity Agbahey has joined our board of directors. Tity brings incredible insight to our organization, having spent more than a decade working to advance human rights and inclusive development in Africa. In her most recent role as regional coordinator for Africa at the Coalition for Human Rights in Development, Tity helped to guide a global coalition of social movements, civil society organizations, and grassroots groups working to ensure that communities have the information, power and resources to determine their own development paths and to hold development finance institutions, governments, and other actors accountable for their impacts on people and the planet. Earlier in her career, Tity worked as an analyst for the Pretoria-based think tank Institute for Security Studies (ISS) and as the Africa Program Associate at Girls Not Brides, the Partnership to End Child Marriage, before joining the regional office of Amnesty International in Dakar, Senegal, where she worked from 2016 to 2021.
Tity is an Afro-feminist and her many impressive achievements include authoring numerous articles and a co-written chapter in “Doing Peace the Rights Way,” a collection of Essays in International Law and Relations in Honour of Louise Arbour.
Tity’s wisdom and expertise will be invaluable to our team as we deepen our work supporting community-led development on the African continent. We extend a very warm welcome to Tity and are honored that she has agreed to serve as a member of the board.
