Ann Van Dusen’s long and successful career USAID brought many challenges, including the case of a contractor implicated in kickbacks, sexual harassment and and the irregular importation of 1200 monkeys to the United States. Her conclusion from the sorry 1980s episode? “It is important to find ways to make it safe for whistleblowers to speak up.”
Van Dusen’s moral compass was set early. She was deeply influenced by a grandmother who was a suffragette, anti-war and civil rights activist. Van Dusen went on to serve in multiple senior positions at USAID, and helped design the agency’s child survival strategy. After retirement, she was a founding director of Georgetown’s Masters Program for Global Human Development and served on multiple boards.
Van Dusen was interviewed by Alex Shakow in October 2017. You can read the full story at: https://adst.org/wp-content/uploads/2018/01/Van-Dusen-Ann-1.pdf
