Anne Healy .
Before joining Evidence Action, Anne led Development Innovation Ventures (DIV) at the Global Development Lab of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID). DIV is USAID’s venture capital-inspired, tiered, evidence-based innovation fund that invests comparatively small amounts in relatively unproven concepts and continues to support and scale only those that prove they work.
Anne has worked across the private, public, and social sectors on evidence and innovation in government and international development, helping to launch the Innovations for Poverty Action operation in Kenya; advising companies, government, and philanthropies as a consultant at McKinsey & Co.; advising the former Deputy Secretary at the U.S. State Department as an Obama Administration appointee; and, serving on the board of IDinsight.
She has a JD and a Master in Public Administration in International Development (MPA/ID) from Harvard and a BA from Princeton.
