Chief of Party, Global Waters CKM


Susan Davis is Chief of Party for USAID’s Global Waters Communications and Knowledge Management II Program. She has 29 years of leadership experience in both the for-profit and nonprofit worlds. Ms. Davis has evaluated or supported international development activities in 24 countries and advised donors, impact investors, nonprofits, and social enterprises on how to support strong water and sanitation systems in developing countries. She is a Practitioner in Residence at the Scheller College of Business at Georgia Tech, co-designing and co-teaching a course on effective and responsible social impact.

Previously, she was the Global Coordinator for Agenda for Change, leading the development of a shared vision for collaborative systems strengthening efforts across 14 organizations in more than 40 countries. Before that, she was the founder and Executive Director of Improve International, a not-for-profit research and consulting firm that sought to improve responses to global water and sanitation crises. She specialized in identifying root causes of failure and helping the water, sanitation, and hygiene (WASH) sector to learn from and respond to these lessons. She has spoken about accelerating learning from what works—and more importantly, what does not—to improve impact at several international conferences, webinars, and on podcasts. She has an MPH from the George Washington University and a BS in Applied Biology from the Georgia Institute of Technology.
