Mission & Vision


PartnersGlobal advances resilient civic space through authentic partnership and accompaniment, inclusive processes, and conflict sensitivity to bring about more peaceful, secure, and accountable societies.


PartnersGlobal contributes to a world where civil society thrives, change is managed peacefully, rights are protected, and democracy can flourish. We seek to be the leader in resiliency-strengthening in the peacebuilding space by offering the most innovative, conflict sensitive and locally driven methodologies that assist civil society organizations to adapt and thrive in a context of volatility and instability.

Living Our Values

At PartnersGlobal, diversity, equity, and inclusion (DE&I) are not just buzzwords. They are inherent principles  that we adhere to every day and have been part of our foundational roots from the very beginning. We believe the power of diversity enriches us by revealing new ways to understand and engage with global and local changemakers. We approach our work using a DE&I lens to identify challenges and to discover, design, and deliver solutions for a more peaceful, inclusive, democratic, and sustainable world. We are committed to ensuring that teams reflect the vibrant communities we serve, and we intentionally cultivate an inclusive environment that honors the unique identities, backgrounds, and experiences of our staff, the Partners Network, and local partners.

In April 2021, we were a first endorser of The Coalition for Racial & Ethnic Equity in Development (CREED) – a collective of international development and humanitarian assistance organizations based in the United States committed to building racial and ethnic equity that now has over 85 signatory organizations. As a member of CREED, and leader on the learning hub task team, Partners pledges to commit to and build accountability for racial and ethnic equity within our own organizations’ policies, systems, and culture.

Partners is also actively involved as a member of OrgsinSolidarity, with Edith Kardouni, Partners’ Human Resources and Talent Management Director taking on a leadership role. 

Land Acknowledgement

PartnersGlobal offices are located on the unceded, unsurrendered ancestral lands of the Nacotchtank and the Piscataway People. We pay respects to their elders past and present. We believe that social justice in the United States and globally requires reconciliation with all peoples who are the original guardians of the land we are grateful to share.  Please take a moment to consider the many legacies of violence, displacement, migration, and settlement that precede us.
