Emily Bosworth is a communications officer at the David and Lucile Packard Foundation. She joins the Foundation with nine years of communications, international development and public health experience across the fields of maternal-child health and environmental conservation. Prior to joining the Foundation, Emily managed the communications department at Relief International, a development NGO operating in 25 countries. In this role, she oversaw internal and external communications, private donor relations and worked closely with program teams on advocacy initiatives. She previously served as a health educator in Cambodia and as an evaluation fellow for UC Berkeley’s Bixby Center for Population, Health and Sustainability’s Girl-Child Education program in Northern Nigeria. In addition to global health work, Emily has been an advocate for conservation, community health and social impact initiatives throughout the Pacific Northwest and California — working at public relations agencies in Portland, Oregon and in Los Angeles.
