Brittany Cesarini
Senior Director of Communications & Development

As Senior Director of Communications & Development at Global Health Corps (GHC), Brittany leads a team committed to championing the power of equity-driven leadership to transform global health. She oversees messaging & storytelling, branding, content creation & editorial, internal communications, and digital communications. Over the past six years, she’s worked with hundreds of GHC fellows and alumni to find, hone, and share their voices to accelerate progress towards health equity. Brittany has also spoken and facilitated at global events including Diversity Reboot 2021, Women Leaders in Global Health 2021, and New York University’s Social Innovation Symposium in 2020.

Prior to her work at GHC, Brittany led communications and legislative affairs for a Bronx-based New York City Council Member, focusing on key health and immigration issues in the poorest Congressional district in the U.S. She began her career working at the intersection of strategic communications and grassroots health advocacy in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania as the recipient of the Henry Richardson Labouisse ’26 Prize.

Brittany holds a Bachelor’s degree in Public Policy with a double minor in Gender & Sexuality Studies and African Studies from Princeton University. She has also trained in effective coaching with LifeLabs, effective management with The Management Center, and “writing to change the world” with The Op-Ed Project. Fluent in Swahili and an avid reader, writer, and hiker, Brittany currently lives in Northeast Pennsylvania with her husband and their young son.

Fun Fact: Brittany has bungee jumped off the highest commercial bungee location in the world — Bloukrans Bridge in Western Cape, South Africa.

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