Her proven track record in supporting leadership and teams to execute efficiently on their critical priorities will help advance EngenderHealth’s mission to put women and girls first and at the center stage of the global development agenda,” said Ulla Müller, President and CEO.

Smith comes to EngenderHealth from Family Planning 2020 (FP2020), where she started at the inception of the global partnership in 2012 and helped see the organization from its earliest days to the present. Most recently serving as Chief of Staff, she has held various roles to support its leadership and team through its growth and evolution, to establish and streamline processes, and to harmonize crosscutting portfolios of work and operations.
