Rev. Charles Kwaku-Odoi
Nominated Governor (Caribbean & African Health Network - CAHN)
Nominated Governor for Inclusive Community Groups
I am the Director of Strategic Partnerships at the Caribbean & African Health Network (CAHN), and am co-chair of the MFT-CAHN Partnership. I am also a minister and a keen advocate of Christian ecumenism. As an interfaith and multi-faith practitioner, I engage with civic leaders, policy makers and commissioners of public services.
Professionally, I work as a management consultant, policy analyst, and business development manager. I advise statutory agencies and lead community engagement in the Black community on domestic violence, female genital mutilation, modern slavery, HIV, blood and organ donation. I also volunteer for initiatives aimed at building community cohesion/resilience, and reducing social isolation, health inequalities, food poverty and hate crime.
I feel that I can bring to MFT’s Council of Governors, excellent knowledge of leadership, stakeholder engagement, financial management, charity governance, policy formulation, systems and process development and change management.
