PEACEBUILDING ON THE FRONTLINES – SEARCH FOR COMMON GROUND
THURSDAY, MAY 5TH, 2022 – 1 PM
We are honored and excited to host speakers from the World’s Largest Peace Building Organization, Search for Common Ground (Search). VP of Human Resources, Jacqueline Oburu, interviews Judy Kimamo, Country Director, Search for Common Ground, Kenya
Creativity and ingenuity have always been hallmarks of the Search for Common Ground approach. In just one of many innovative initiatives, Judy Kimamo helped to restore Kenya’s economy when she led her team in a breakthrough project to stop extremists from sneaking into Kenya. (Responding to the extremist threat, the government had banned nighttime fishing, thus tanking the coastal economy.) Posing as fishermen, Kimamo’s team successfully arranged digital identity cards for fellow fishermen, convincing the government to lift the nighttime fishing ban and restore economic balance! Join us to learn how Search’s five values: Collaboration, Audacity,Tenacity, Empathy and Results are keys to their amazing mission and work. We guarantee you’ll be inspired.
