DAI works on the frontlines of global development, transforming ideas into action—action into impact. We are committed to shaping a more livable world. DAI’s mission is to make a lasting difference in the world by helping people improve their lives. We envision a world in which communities and societies become more prosperous, fairer and better governed, safer, healthier, and environmentally more sustainable.
An employee-owned company with more than 2,000 employees worldwide, DAI implements approximately 150 projects in 85 countries across multiple sectors: economic growth, governance, health, information and communications technology, environment and energy, stability, and corporate services. Its clients include the U.S. Agency for International Development, EC, DFID, EBRD, U.S. Department of Defense, Millennium Challenge Corporation, U.S. Department of Labor, World Bank, World Food Programme, and various private companies and national and subnational governments.
In everything we do, we live by four core values:
- Integrity: we have an uncompromising commitment to civility and ethical behaviour. We play by the rules and do the right thing.
- Responsibility: we are accountable to our clients, our colleagues, and the communities where we work. If we fall short, we own up, fix the problem, and get it right the next time.
- Excellence: we demand of ourselves the highest technical and professional standards. We celebrate innovation, learning, and service. We have an unwavering desire to “stretch,” as individuals and as an organization.
- Global Citizenship: we are a global company with a global outlook. We depend on our diversity, respect the cultures in which we work, and treat everyone, everywhere with professionalism and dignity. We thrive on collaboration with our partners around the world, and share with them the hope that our work will leave the world a better place.
