Corey Greer

Director of Communications

Whether by rebranding the organization, building the website, encouraging her colleagues to put pen to paper, or interacting with the WAND community online, Corey ensures that WAND's external communications are crisp, concise, and effective. 

As WAND's Gender Focal Point, she liaises with the Gender Champions of Nuclear Policy (GCNP) and the U.S. Civil Society Working Group for Women, Peace, and Security (U.S. CSWG) and manages WAND's En Voz Alta mentorship project.

She previously worked as a Project Assistant in the Gender, Women, and Democracy Program at the National Democratic Institute and spent six months in Istanbul working as the Gender Equality Team Intern for UNDP. She holds a Master's degree in International Human Rights with a focus on women's rights and security from the Josef Korbel School of International Studies.
