Britt Jenkins
Britt is a queer feminist, born and raised in the American South, with over 10 years of experience working to advance human rights.  Britt is committed to supporting a feminist philanthropic model that strives to shift power back to communities and their expertise. After receiving her Master of Public Policy from Duke University, Britt joined Global Fund for Women as the Economic Justice Program Officer, where she managed the portfolio's grantmaking and supported the organization in developing a climate justice strategy.
Life and work have led Britt to living for extended periods in South Carolina, North Carolina, Texas, Tennessee, Washington, DC, the Republic of Kazakhstan, and now New York City--which feels like a wonderful combination of all of the above. When she's not working, you can find Britt enjoying a Broadway show, scoring big in pub trivia, or attempting to surf at Rockaway Beach (attempt being the operative word).
