Video available | Webinar "How to transition after years in the humanitarian sector?" on 31 January with Nancy Bonamy

Updated: Jun 3

The first hour of presentation will be recorded.

To start the New Year 2024, CoCreate Humanity is very pleased to welcome again Nancy Bonamy to talk about professional transitioning.


Most humanitarians, at one point or another in their career, ask themselves the famous question: "What next? Should I continue my life in the humanitarian sector, or should I leave? And if so, how?”

🎶 “Should I stay, or should I go?” 🎶

If this is your tune, you will probably recognize yourself in one of these situations:

• You've had enough of sacrificing your personal or family life for your work.

• You've had too many disappointments and disillusions.

• You feel you've stagnated in your career.

• You no longer have the same desires, aspirations, expectations, and needs.

• You've experienced a security incident, a burn-out, a health problem, and since, nothing has been the same.

• You've been laid off!

Whether forced or by choice, today you realize that you don't know:

• What else you can do?

• What do you really want?

• What do you have to offer?

• What career development can you hope for outside or within your organization?

• How can you promote your atypical career to a potential employer?

• Are you capable of adapting to a "normal life"?

• How can you better balance your professional and personal life?

• Are you ready? Is it the right time for a transition?

• How to find the time and energy to make this change?

If you recognize yourself in any of these situations, join us in this webinar where Nancy Bonamy will talk about the challenges of transitioning humanitarians, helping you to better understand what's going on behind the scenes, and what are the steps to succeed in your life or career transitions, within or outside the humanitarian sector. Nancy will illustrate this webinar with concrete examples, drawn from her own experience as a humanitarian for 10 years and from those of the humanitarians she accompanies as part of her work as a professional and personal transition coach.

The first hour of presentation will be recorded and available on our YouTube channel a few days day after. The second part of the session will be dedicated to interaction and Q&A between Nancy and the audience, and it will not be recorded.


Nancy Bonamy is a certified coach in career and life transition, burnout, and well-being, supporting humanitarians and expatriate spouses who wish to create positive changes in their personal and professional lives.

Multi-expatriate for 28 years, Nancy has worked for over 10 years in the humanitarian sector, with the ICRC, including 8 years on operational missions and 2 years at headquarters in Geneva. She has undergone 4 career changes and numerous professional and personal transitions, one the most difficult was leaving the humanitarian field.

In 2015, she obtained her certification in career and life coaching from New York University (NYU). At the same time, she certified in positive psychology, resilience, and emotional & social intelligence, while specializing on issues related to life and career transitions for expatriates and humanitarians, including post-burnout reorientation.

Nancy is convinced that in every transition, whether desired or imposed, there are opportunities to be seized and a chance to reinvent oneself a little, a lot, even passionately! Facilitating these changes in a positive and lasting way in the lives of the humanitarians she accompanies is what she loves most about her work today.

Mother of two teenagers, with a husband working in the humanitarian field, Nancy currently lives in Yaoundé, Cameroon, from where she accompanies, in French and English, transitioning humanitarians and expat spouses.
