Leadership team

Caroline Riseboro has stepped down as President and CEO of Plan International Canada. We are grateful for Caroline’s leadership and contributions over the last four years that have enabled Plan International Canada to reach millions of children, especially girls, in the most marginalized and vulnerable communities around the world.

The search for a successor is underway, led by Plan International Canada’s Board of Directors. In the interim, the organization is being led by Sarah Kramer, Chief Operating Officer and Tanjina Mirza, Chief Programs Officer, who will act as co-CEOs until a successor is in place. Our co-CEOs, supported by a strong senior leadership team and dedicated staff, will keep Plan firmly on the course to achieving our 20 Million Reasons strategic plan during this transition period.

We look forward to continuing to inspire Canadians to believe in the power and potential of every child and create a world where all can unleash their full potential.
