RESULTS Australia is pleased to announce the appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer, Negaya Chorley who commences in her role on 6 April 2020.

We are delighted to welcome Negaya and we look forward to working with her and introducing her to our Partners and Stakeholders in the near future.”

Negaya brings 20 years of human rights, advocacy and campaigning experience to RESULTS, most recently from roles as Director Advocacy & Communications at Caritas and prior to that at UNICEF Australia. Negaya is passionate about creating spaces for people at the margins to inform policymaking at the local, national and global level.

Negaya said, “I am delighted to step into the CEO role at RESULTS and welcome the opportunity to lead the impressive team of staff and volunteers. As a passionate believer in values-based leadership, I work hard to carve out and create environments within which staff and colleagues can thrive.”

Amelia returns to the UK to rejoin her family and will continue to provide input as a Consultant for an extended period.

RESULTS Staff and Volunteers work to inform policy and mobilise resources to fight diseases of poverty and achieve equitable access to health for millions of people living in poverty.
