A charity set up to boost the work of support agencies has expanded its team.

Shana Williams has been appointed as programme manager at the Inter Agency Committee for Children, Families and the Community.

Ms Williams said: “I am delighted to join the IAC at such a transformative time for Bermuda’s social sector.

“I look forward to driving effective change management processes and improving efficiencies through process automation and technological advancements.

“I thank the executive director and board for this opportunity to use my expertise to service the larger local community.”

A spokeswoman for the organisation added: “This reflects the growth of IAC since hiring its first-full time staff member and now executive director, Nicola Paugh, two years ago.

“IAC is Bermuda’s only non-profit focused specifically on social sector capacity building.

“An additional role of programme manager will support social sector agencies to better serve children, families and the community.”

The spokeswoman said that a need to grow the charity was identified as part of a planning process last year.

She added: “IAC expanded its mission and vision to unify and strengthen agencies serving children and families as well as those working to address other critical community needs.

“Non-profit capacity building support was identified as a critical need, and has been IAC’s most significant area of growth since 2020, with 60 per cent of its membership now coming from the non-profit sector.

“To support this expanded mandate, Ms Williams will be responsible for delivering and growing core IAC programmes and services.”

Dr Paugh said she was “thrilled” by the appointment of Ms Williams.

She added: “Her passion and experience with the power of technology to build capacity and transform systems will be a significant asset to our sector and to IAC as we continue to find ways to unify and strengthen the organisations and professionals addressing our most critical community needs.”

Tiffanne Thomas, the IAC board chairwoman, said: “IAC continues to demonstrate its ability to evolve while remaining relevant and responsive to the needs of our stakeholders.

“On behalf of the board, I congratulate Nicola on her new role as executive director, and welcome Shana to the team.”

IAC was founded in 1996 to bring together public, private and non-profit organisations that prove services to children and families, as well as to promote collaboration and common standards.
