Our Secretariat

The sustainability and future of GDC build upon the time, efforts and passion of every dedicated team leader and member of our Secretariat.

The GDC Secretariat

The Global Diaspora Confederation is run by the Secretariat, which cosists of four departments - Administration, Marketing, Healthcare and Project. It reports to the Board of Trustees and carries out day-to-day operation of GDC.

The GDC is built with time, efforts and passion of our volunteers who believe in themselves in making a positive difference to the global diaspora. As a relatively new global movement, our volunteers dare to overcome challenges, lay the foundation, develop the infrastructure, learn new skills, adapt to changes, execute as planned, embrace differences and proactively imagine for GDC. They commit themselves selflessly beyond their daily work, busy life and intense studies just like many diaspora organization volunteers, to create a better world for humanity and more.

 

While there are many passionate volunteers we also wish to thank, here are our team leaders who sustain and keep driving GDC forward. GDC would not be possible without their marvelous support.
