Transforming the lives of the world’s 450 million smallholder farmers isn’t a task any single organization can achieve; it requires systems-level change that can only be accomplished by many actors working together. That’s why we’re thrilled to welcome two new members to our board of directors—Mary Barton-Dock and C.D. Glin—each of whom brings to the table a wealth of experience working in the public sector. Mary and C.D. understand the critical role that the public sector can play in creating an enabling environment for positive change, and we're excited to benefit from their guidance as we collaborate with state and intergovernmental organizations to bring prosperity to farming communities around the world.
