Anna Scott

Head of Content

Anna manages content across the ODI’s platforms and programmes.

Anna’s background is in human rights and global development. Before joining the ODI, Anna was a journalist at the Guardian, where she wrote and commissioned content on broad issues, from aid transparency to global health. Before joining the Guardian, Anna helped set up the Europe office at the Center for Global Development, where she handled policy outreach and produced the popular podcast, Development Drums.

Anna’s passion for open data first developed between her BA in politics and anthropology and her MA in human rights, when she worked on the AidData programme at Development Initiatives and saw for the first time the difference that robust data can make to people’s lives.

Anna has been assessed by ODI Programme Leads as able to train others in open data.  She can deliver high quality paid-for open data training under the ODI Registered Trainer badge. Specialising in storytelling,  journalism and global development, Anna is based in London.
