Freedom House mourns the passing of Dianne Cullinane, a former Freedom House project director, who oversaw a highly successful women’s rights program in Jordan. After leaving Freedom House, she joined the U.S. Agency for International Development, where she continued to work closely with Freedom House and its long-standing program in Kyrgyzstan. Prior to joining Freedom House, she worked with the Open Society Fund in Hungary and served as an Anti-Corruption Advisor with Pact Cambodia. Dianne is remembered by her colleagues as a consummate professional with a deep commitment to the support of human rights and democracy overseas.
