NEW YORK—Nancy Goldfarb, a veteran of senior corporate communications positions with Bristol-Myers Squibb and Unilever, has been named communications director for The Center for Reproductive Rights, a leading abortion rights activist group that uses the law to advance reproductive freedom as a fundamental right.
Goldfarb will be responsible for developing and directing communications strategies to advance the mission of the Center, reporting to Nancy Northup, president, who says Goldfarb joins the organization “at a time when it is absolutely crucial that we influence the debate about reproductive rights, both in the United States, and around the world. Nancy’s terrific communications skills and personal passion for promoting women’s rights will help us raise the profile of our organization and our cause.”
Prior to joining the Center, Goldfarb led corporate media relations for Unilever North America, serving as the company’s chief spokesperson while providing strategic counsel to divisional heads and their management teams. She previously spent 11 years at Bristol-Myers Squibb Company, in a variety of roles, working on initiatives such as the company’s $100 million commitment to fighting HIV/AIDS in Africa and gaining FDA clearance to market TAXOL, the company’s groundbreaking cancer medication.
Earlier in her career, she worked on the agency side of the business with Ketchum.
