About Sue Pleming
Sue Pleming is the senior director of communications at InterAction, an alliance of international NGOs doing humanitarian and development work abroad. Sue was a foreign policy reporter for the news agency Reuters for two decades, with assignments in Africa, London, Brussels and Washington. She covered the State Department, traveling with three secretaries of state and also coordinated the agency's Afghanistan and Pakistan coverage out of Washington before joining InterAction in September 2010. Sue started her career in journalism in the mid-1980s at The Star newspaper in Johannesburg during the height of the anti-apartheid protests which led to Nelson Mandela's release from prison. She also worked for Agence France-Presse as their southern Africa correspondent before joining the BBC's Africa Service in London. While technically not a "reporter" any more, Sue sees her role as communicating directly with the public and policy-makers whether through blogs, social media or traditional opeds. Telling a good story in a compelling way can drive change, whether ending corruption or showing the impact of humanitarian work on the ground.
