Communications Veteran Brings Diverse Outreach and Advocacy Expertise
Arlington, Va. (February 2, 2017) – Conservation International (CI) announced today that Jenny Parker McCloskey has joined the organization as Vice President of Media.
Jenny comes to CI from the National Constitution Center where she served as Vice President of Communications. A veteran of the news industry, Jenny has also worked in-house at top-tier outlets such as ABC News, New York magazine and Fortune. She started out as an assistant to George Stephanopoulos, aiding the launch of his The New York Times best-selling memoir, All Too Human. Later, Jenny managed publicity at ABC News for 20/20 featuring Barbara Walters and for the primetime special, Peter Jennings Reporting.
“When it comes to sharing stories in today’s 24/7 news cycle, the podium has become overcrowded,” said Dr. M. Sanjayan, executive vice president and senior scientist at CI. “Jenny understands both the stakes and the storytelling potential, having served both in and out of the newsroom. We could not be in better hands to have our voice heard.”
Jenny is a graduate of Purchase College and holds a master’s degree in political science from the Graduate Faculty of the New School University.
