Dusie is Chief Operating Officer at Convergence. Over the past ten years with Convergence, Dusie has managed operations, fundraising, human resources, and finance functions and contributed to communications, strategic planning, program development, and evaluation.
Dusie joined Convergence in 2010 as a fellow on Convergence’s U.S.-Pakistan relations project, called the U.S.-Pakistan Leaders Forum. For five years, she organized the convening of diverse American and Pakistani leaders to discuss common challenges and shared opportunities. These efforts produced tangible results – dozens of partnerships launched, connecting students, teachers, business executives, media, cultural and religious leaders, policymakers, and many more. At the same time, Convergence was growing from a startup to a mature non-profit, building a track record of successful dialogue-to-action on multiple issues of public concern. Dusie helped build the organizational capacity to advance Convergence’s projects.
Prior to Convergence, Dusie interned on Capitol Hill, taught French at St. Albans School in Washington, DC, taught English in the suburbs of Paris, and served as a junior policy officer at 4Children, a British children’s charity. Dusie holds an MA in human rights from University College London’s School of Public Policy and a BA from Brown University in international relations and French civilization.
