The Christian Alliance for Inclusive Development


The Christian Alliance for Inclusive Development was created to support and promote women serving in Christian global development, and together with our male allies, advocate for gender equality in the sector.

Through connecting, advocating, spiritual restoration, and leadership equipping, The Alliance exists to advance diversity in leadership so that organizational performance improves and there is a greater impact in the global fight against poverty.

What members say…


“As a woman CEO, it’s hard to find a community and network that understands what it’s like being a woman in leadership – particularly a woman of color.  The Alliance gives me access to a diverse community of professional women who understand the uniqueness of being a woman in leadership. At the same time, I’m able to offer my experience of being a leader of color from India to encourage and build up my sisters around the world.”
– Anu George Canjanathoppil, CEO IJM Canada 


"As a young professional woman who aspires to leadership in the NGO sector, the Alliance has allowed me to connect with female leaders around the world, learn from them, develop professionally, and connect with others in global development who consistently inspire me. Most of all, it has given me the courage to own my ambition with humility and grace."
– Sarah Jackson, Talent Management, Compassion International
