GADN Co-Chair. Deputy Director of International Development, ActionAid UK


Lee Webster is Deputy Director of International Development at ActionAid UK. She has extensive experience of women's rights, and working with women's movements, across policy, programmes, research, communications and funding.

She was previously at Womankind Worldwide where she was Head of the Policy and Communications Team. Lee has also worked in women, peace & security, women’s participation, violence against women and girls, disability rights and maternal health.

Outside of work, Lee gives most of her energy to raising her son to share her feminist values.

“GADN welcomed me in the early days of my development sector career, and through GADN I found my peers, learned new skills and had a space to enhance my own thinking and practice on women’s rights work. I’m passionate about GADN providing that space to others, and am proud to co-chair the network”.
