We cultivate working across silos and tackling the root causes of intersecting inequities.
We encourage feedback, out-of-the-box approaches, iteration, and learning from setbacks.
We center our shared values and strengthen our resilience and reflection muscles for sustainable impact.
We foster deep personal and professional relationships and foster collaboration to amplify impact across our network.
We recognize that leadership is an iterative process, something that leaders must intentionally practice throughout their lives. This is why we subscribe to a set of GHC leadership practices that we nurture our leaders to live out. We call these ‘practices’ intentionally, recognizing that leadership requires continual hard work and reflection.
The pandemic made it clear that health and other societal factors are deeply interdependent. That’s why our approach goes beyond the individual to cultivate a strong network to collectively drive change across entire health ecosystems. GHC fellows and alumni work at key leverage points within health ecosystems, from grassroots organizations to international NGOs to Ministries of Health.
We intentionally place our fellows in roles with a range of partner organizations, and our alumni go on to work at 400+ organizations across 24 countries. We equip our leaders to mobilize their broader networks for social and policy change on key health issues such as safe abortion access, stronger primary healthcare, and better health financing mechanisms.
