Elizabeth Daube is Senior Communications Officer at American Jewish World Service, where she produces videos, publications and more. She currently focuses on using storytelling and blogging to educate donors and experts alike on the challenges facing low-income women and girls in India–and the most promising ways to confront those challenges.
In the U.S. and in the developing world, Daube has worked as a journalist and with researchers and nonprofit programs, investigating diverse topics related to health, gender, violence and poverty. Prior to joining AJWS, she worked for the Boston University Alzheimer’s Disease Center, where she oversaw online and print communications and was invited to speak about the latest memory loss research–from the ethics of genetic testing for Alzheimer’s to the emerging “concussion crisis” among professional football players–at community events across the state. In 2013, Daube completed master’s degrees in public health and social work at Boston University. She also served as a BU Program for Global Health Storytelling fellow in Kenya and with the USAID Global Health Fellows Program in Uganda, where she trained counselors and volunteers on sexual and intimate partner violence and ways to support survivors.
