With Kimberly Flowers, Executive Director of the Goldfarb Center at Colby College

Ms. Flowers has two decades of experience in public policy, international development, and strategic communications and has been a frequent speaker and moderator on global food security trends. She joined Colby College in March 2020 as the executive director of the Goldfarb Center for Public Affairs. Previously, she served since 2015 as director of both the Humanitarian Agenda and the Global Food Security Project at the Center for Strategic & International Studies (CSIS), a bipartisan think tank in Washington, D.C. Her work at CSIS predominately addressed the effectiveness of U.S. foreign assistance programs and policies that impact poverty, hunger, and malnutrition in the developing world. While at CSIS, she led a high-level congressional task force on humanitarian access and conducted field research in more than a dozen countries. Her career path has taken her around the world, including working for the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) in Ethiopia, Jamaica, and Haiti, serving twice as a Peace Corps Volunteer and leading multiple congressional staff delegations overseas. A frequent speaker and moderator, Flowers has authored numerous articles on global food systems and humanitarian aid. She graduated magna cum laude from William Jewell College and studied at Oxford University.
