Welcome to our newsletter, NGO Reporter: Gathering Perspectives from the Global NGO Community. For 30 years, NGO Reporter has been the authoritative voice of civil society at the UN, a news source that connects NGOs, the media, and civil society networks worldwide to the work of GNEC, its more than 1,500 constituent NGOs, and topical issues related to all UN Department of Global Communications (DGC) associates.
NGO Reporter was founded by the wonderful Dorrie Weiss, who launched the publication in 1992. Its free subscriber list includes NGO leaders associated with UN DGC, as well as UN and other media, and all those interested in UN-related, NGO activities at UNHQ and worldwide — including those created or promoted by members of GNEC and its staff.
Prior to her passing, Ms. Weiss mentored current GNEC President Patrick Sciarratta as Editor. Patrick then invited Dr. Lester Wilson to join him, and the two became its co-editors for nearly two decades, assisted in large measure by the dearly departed Joan Levy, and former site manager Isaac Humphries. Ms. Annie Deng was a Contributing Editor through 2021 and Board Member Ms. Dakota Silver has assisted the GNEC Webmaster, Mr. Darrick Hatwood and L2 Web Media Group, with online placement and social media relations. To all our volunteers, especially those on the NGO Reporter and its Communications subcommittee team, led by Board Member Ms. Olasubomi Iginla, we remain eternally grateful.

The Global NGO Executive Committee (GNEC) was founded in 1962 to promote a closer working relationship between the United Nations and the non-governmental organizations (NGOs) associated with it. GNEC acts as a liaison between the NGO community and the UN's Department of Global Communications (DGC). GNEC provides strategic guidance to help NGOs become more effective partners of the UN.
