The Insights team sits within Global Delivery Programs (GDP’s) Strategy & Insights division. GDP works to improve the delivery of health products and services so countries can significantly prevent unnecessary sickness and death for vulnerable populations, especially women and children in low-income settings. We strive to elevate the voices of women, public health leaders, mothers and health workers who play a critical role in health promotion and disease prevention.
We define an insight as new understanding that clarifies decisions, actions, and ways forward. While we often act as data advisors for a wide range of data methods and types (including geospatial, innovative measures/proxies, surveys, sampling, monitoring, customer insights, human-centered design, learning/impact evaluation), our primary role is in insights formation and activation which may include modeling, analytics, synthesis, transformation, and insights presentation. We go big, seeking the groundbreaking contributions our foundation can make toward improving health.
Leadership and Culture
Our culture shapes our choices about what we do and how we do it. We believe that energized people, working well together, fueled by great leadership in an inclusive environment can do extraordinary things. We expect foundation employees to intentionally and consistently embody our values of optimism, collaboration, rigor, innovation, and inclusion.
