OGP Ambassadors are senior figures charged with raising the partnerships profile, protecting its credibility and promoting its sustainability. Their roles are designed to complement the work and existing responsibilities of the Steering Committee members and other OGP participating governments and civil society organisations.
Early in 2017, the Governance and Leadership subcommittee endorsed the creation of a network of OGP Envoys, comprising former OGP Steering Committee Principals from civil society and government who played significant roles in building the organization. Our growing network of Envoys represents OGP at high-profile public events and share their experiences of shaping the open government agenda. We are thrilled to announce our newest OGP Envoys: Manish Bapna, Marianna Madia, Mary Beth Goodman, Mukelani Dimba, Radu Puchiu and Alejandro González.
