Zoë Reiter is the Director of Civic Engagement for POGO, where she leads a new line of work to engage stakeholders and communities affected by corruption and abuse of power to push for a more accountable and effective federal government. Zoë brings more than 15 years of experience with anti-corruption activists and reformers from around the world to ensure strong public accountability, with a focus on issues related to inequality, corruption, and human insecurity. This experience includes leading Transparency International’s Clean Contracting initiative, which pushed to make over $1 billion in large-scale public infrastructure and service contracts in the European Union more accountable to the people those contracts intended to serve. She also led the design and implementation of the JustLEAD project, where she worked with nine Latin American and African chapters and the United Nations Office on Drugs and Crime (UNODC) to make criminal justice systems more resilient against incursion by organized crime and corrupt interests. Before taking on these global and cross-regional initiatives at Transparency International, she led regional programming and special initiatives with 19 national chapters in the Americas for several years, focusing on a spectrum of issues including public security, economic equality, and open governance.
