CSIS Trustee Henrietta Holsman Fore selected to become the 7th Executive Director of UNICEF

CSIS is proud to acknowledge that Henrietta Holsman Fore has been selected to become the 7th Executive Director of the United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) effective January 1, 2018.  No one is better suited to this important new responsibility than Henrietta Fore.  Throughout her life, she has blended success in private endeavors and a passion for public service.  In the Bush Administration she served consecutively as Director of the U.S. Mint, Undersecretary of State for Management and ultimately as Administrator of the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID).  She will bring business efficiency to the noble purpose of helping children around the world.  While accepting this appointment requires that Henrietta depart from the CSIS Board of Trustees, we celebrate the good fortune for UNICEF and the world that she will now devote her enormous energies and talent to this noble cause.
