Christina Bennett

Christina Bennett is the CEO of the START Network, an organization that aims to transform humanitarian action through tackling what it sees as the biggest systemic problems the sector faces: slow and reactive funding, centralised power and resistance to change.

It seeks to drive change in the global aid system by tackling what it sees as the biggest systemic problems the sector faces: slow and reactive funding, centralised power and resistance to change.
