Great Federal Employees Initiative

Honoree for Week of September 21, 2009

Amy Meyer

Director, Office of Economic Development in Pakistan, United States Agency for International Development (USAID)

Amy Meyer, who won the 2009 Service to America International Affairs Medal, arrived in Pakistan in 2006. As Director of the USAID’s Office of Economic Development in that country, she hit the ground running by working with local women to create dairy cooperatives. Starting with just a staff of two and little funding, Amy now oversees a $200 million budget and several successful economic empowerment programs. She even teaches yoga on Pakistani television and has spent much of her personal time dispensing advice to local women in their homes.
