Lizanne McBride has spent over 17 years working in humanitarian and international development in a range of positions. Most recently, Lizanne worked with the International Rescue Committee (IRC), a humanitarian aid agency supporting refugees and communities impacted by violent conflict. Within IRC, she held the position of Senior Director for Strategic and Post-Conflict Development. Prior to this post, she served as Director for the London-based Post Conflict Development Initiative, promoting understanding on issues related to post war reconstruction. In the field, Ms McBride served as IRC’s Country and Deputy Director for nearly five years in Rwanda. In that role, she helped design and implement tracing and reunification programs for children left unaccompanied after the genocide, and conducted one of the largest and most comprehensive programs on fostering the integration and development of adolescents within communities. She recently completed a Visiting Fellowship at Stanford University’s Center for Democracy, Development and Rule of Law, where she worked with professors on evaluation systems for community driven reconstruction in post-conflict. She is a former Peace Corp Volunteer in Kenya, and holds an MA in International Relations and a BA in Business Administration.
