Sarah Hillware is a social entrepreneur and global communications strategist. She has spent her career designing, implementing and managing effective public affairs and behavior change campaigns with measurable public health, gender equality, educational and environmental outcomes.
She currently consults the World Bank on external communications and corporate engagement for an international, multi-sectoral program. In addition to the broader program activities, she also works with task teams to implement behavior change communication at the country level.
Sarah has an academic background in international affairs, global health and entrepreneurship and has held positions in international organizations, NGOs and private sector media and marketing companies. Prior to working for two major United Nations agencies, she supported the execution of two major campaigns for the American Association of People with Disabilities (AAPD) and the Pan American Health Organization (PAHO) Foundation.
In 2012, she founded Girls Health Ed, a nonprofit health education program for low-income girls and young women ages 8-17 throughout the United States and Kenya. The organization has since hired employees to manage day-to-day operations, but Sarah continues to advise the organization on strategic initiatives.
Sarah's research on school- and community-based health communication interventions have led her to give talks at TEDxBerkeley as well as at the United Nations through TEDxUNPlaza. You may visit her blog on the Huffington Post or follow her on Twitter @sarahhillware.
