FHI 360’s 2023–25 Strategy
Today the world faces unprecedented and interconnected challenges. The COVID-19 pandemic and the war in Ukraine are the latest manifestations of a seemingly unending succession of interconnected crises that imperil health, well-being and security. These crises have effectively wiped out many of the past decade’s gains in reducing extreme poverty, eradicating infectious diseases, and improving access to education and economic opportunity.
To meet the moment, FHI 360 is moving beyond 20th-century notions of development that shaped how funders and their partners worked. FHI 360 is placing local leadership and local priorities first — and making locally led development and localization a priority so that positive change endures for generations to come.
FHI 360’s 2023–25 strategy sets a course for change. It weaves programs, research and advocacy into an impact framework, built on organizational strengths, that focuses on three big global challenges:
Eroding social cohesion and increasing inequality: These pose an urgent global threat that weakens the cornerstones of stability, democracy, social protection and economic mobility. FHI 360 will focus especially on the effects of these two forces on groups that are historically marginalized and stigmatized.
Growing global health threats: These threats — including emerging diseases, endemic and noncommunicable diseases, and mental health and substance use disorders — increase vulnerability, strain health systems and stall progress across all health domains. FHI 360 will focus especially on reducing these threats and mitigating their effect on well-being, livelihoods and economies.
Proliferating crises: Crises sparked by climate change and violent conflict threaten lives and
well-being, undermine food and economic security, and cause mass displacement of people — all of which requires reimagined approaches to delivering sustainable impact in fragile and conflict-affected settings. FHI 360 will focus especially on addressing the threats to individuals’ safety, health, education and dignity.
To help achieve FHI 360’s vision for change, the Chief Human Resources Officer (CHRO) will be responsible for creating, developing and instituting a global human resources structure to support FHI 360’s 2023–25 strategy and its global infrastructure as the organization works toward its ongoing operational plans. As FHI 360 shifts its emphasis to support local ownership of its global portfolio, it will be essential to equip and support the human resources function to offer best-in-class solutions and become a trusted global advisor and partner, especially in the areas of performance and talent management, talent acquisition, organizational development, succession planning, total rewards and HRIS, and policy and compliance. The CHRO will be a key partner and leader in the organization’s efforts to advance diversity, equity and inclusion (DEI), providing insight, counsel and support to broad-scale DEI efforts.
The CHRO will report directly to the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) and join her executive team. They will work alongside functional and business experts and act as a thought partner to the organization and a global strategic leader to the executive management team, stakeholders and the board of directors.
This leader will be a forward-thinking visionary with a creative, action-oriented approach. They will be a high performer, delivering excellent results and expertly communicating to a global audience. The CHRO role is an ideal opportunity for a change agent who wants to make a difference by helping FHI 360 achieve its ambitious strategy and enhancing the organization’s impact and value to communities, partners and funders.
The compensation range for this position starts at $250,000 annually.
