Brittany Cesarini, Director of Communications

Tackling systemic injustices requires empathy, resilience, innovation, and collaboration. The dynamic GHC community centers on these values, and I am grateful to be part of it.

In leading GHC’s communications efforts, Brittany brings a love of words and an unwavering belief in the power of narrative to help people imagine and build a more equitable world. Prior to joining GHC in 2016, Brittany led communications and legislative affairs for Council Member Fernando Cabrera in The Bronx, focusing on key health and immigration issues in the poorest Congressional district in the U.S. Brittany began her career piloting a community-based health education program in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania, funded by the Henry Richardson Labouisse ’26 Prize. She holds a bachelor’s degree in public policy, gender & sexuality studies, and African studies from Princeton University. Fluent in Swahili and an avid reader and writer, Brittany lives in Northeast PA with her husband and their young son.

Fun Fact: Brittany is a part-time adrenaline junky. That usually takes the form of closely following hot takes on the news cycle, but she has also bungee jumped off the highest commercial bungee location in the world, Bloukrans Bridge in Western Cape, South Africa.
