Alice Laugher

Chief Executive Officer

Committed To Good, United Kingdom
 
Since 2006, CEO Alice Laugher has grown CTG “Committed To Good” from humble beginnings in Afghanistan to a company that has deployed over 10,000 staff operating across 21 conflict-affected countries enabling humanitarian projects.
 
From a 500-person rapid response team running Ebola treatment clinics in Liberia to managing food aid distribution in South Sudan and monitoring the movements of migrants in Libya – humanitarian projects under CTG’s management become a reality even in the remotest and challenging locations in the world.  
 
Alice is an award winning and committed advocate for the Sustainable Development Goals and Women’s Empowerment. She spearheads the CTG #FemaleFirst initiative, which launched on International Women’s Day in 2017 with a target to fill 30% of all CTG project-related roles with women by 2030. Alice is also the driving force behind engagement platform CTG Giving in which she initiated a partnership with a local human rights foundation in Somalia to run entrepreneurship training, providing a grant to female survivors of gender-based violence.
 
Passionate about leaving a lasting impact in the communities in which CTG operates, Alice’s business approach to social responsibility is woven into the company’s DNA, with robust initiatives and action oriented-strategies to make a difference. The annual Committed to Good Summit is just one example of how Alice galvanises the private sector for collective action and supports CTG’s overall shared value approach.
 
In 2019, Alice received the prestigious Oslo Business for Peace Award in recognition of being “businessworthy”. In 2018, Alice was acknowledged as a Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Pioneer by the United Nations at the Global Compact Leader's Summit, in New York.
 
“I know that gender equality is an area in which we can really make a difference, especially to local women in war-torn countries where women aren’t afforded the same opportunities as men,” says Alice.
