Innovation at scale. Bonnell has been with USAID for nearly a decade and has been a champion of innovation throughout that time. She was a founding member of the U.S. Global Development Lab, which works inside the agency and with global partners to source, test and scale new development solutions. After being promoted to chief innovation officer in November 2018, Bonnell spent last year working on cementing USAID's culture of innovation and — through the Federal Innovation Council and other channels — helping agencies across government share solutions, policies and processes to do the same.
