Sherine Guirguis is Common Thread’s Director and lead strategist. Guirguis looks for the people behind the data. She’s been creating powerful narratives with data for 20 years, from leading large-scale behavior change strategies to responding to the Indian Ocean Tsunami, ridding the world of polio, and responding to West Africa’s Ebola outbreak.
Working with thousands of local women in India to eliminate polio in 2011 sparked her passion about gender dynamics in public health. She has held senior behavior change positions with UNICEF and is widely published in the realm of public health and social and behavior change.
