It is with sadness that the New Tactics team announces the departure of Susan Atwood. Susan has served as the New Tactics Program Manager for the past 2 years. Prior to this, she served as a long-time volunteer with the program. During her tenure, she was instrumental in mentoring, stewarding, and maximizing the expertise of our New Tactics team, both at headquarters in St. Paul, Minnesota and in our Middle East North Africa regional office in Amman, Jordan. Most recently, Susan laid the groundwork for New Tactics future through developing a New Tactics sustainability plan. She brought to bear her vast experience in management of remote teams, teaching and cross-cultural relationship-building to greatly advance the New Tactics work in the Middle East and to seize upon opportunities for growth around the world. We have appreciated her decision-making abilities, sense of humor, and deep commitment to advancing human rights. Susan is leaving to relocate with her family to Massachusetts. Her last day will be March 6. Please join us in thanking Susan for her many contributions to New Tactics and and the Center for Victims of Torture.
