Meghan Quinn is the senior strategic advisor for the Center for Innovation in Global Health (CIGH).

Quinn is an experienced communicator, having spent her career developing engagement and communications strategies for candidates and elected officials, leaders in the private sector, and international NGOs. In her current role, Quinn heads the CIGH’s external communications efforts building visibility for its programs and impact with key audiences in the U.S. and around the world.

Prior to joining O’Neill, Quinn oversaw Habitat for Humanity International’s thought leadership communications portfolio designed to broaden understanding of the organization’s work — and expand its impact and influence. As the first person to serve in the newly created role, she sought to elevate the urgency of affordable housing issues globally, highlighting its deep impact on the lives of families around the world, and the ways housing fundamentally intersects with other outcomes including health, education, gender equity, and economic sustainability. Before that, she led the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation’s global media relations and external engagement team highlighting the foundation’s programmatic and advocacy work.
