Washington, D.C. – The National Network to End Domestic Violence (NNEDV) is pleased to announce two new members joining our Board of Directors:
- Jennifer Hanley (North American Head of Safety, Meta)
- Leila Rouhi (Vice President of Trust and Privacy, Amazon);
Both Jennifer and Leila bring a wealth of knowledge and talents to the NNEDV Board, bolstering our work to create a world where domestic violence no longer exists.
Jennifer is North American Head of Safety at Meta where she handles safety policy for the U.S. and Canada. She works with internal teams, external partners, and government stakeholders on issues including women’s safety, child safety, bullying, digital well-being, and suicide prevention.
Leila is the Vice President of Trust and Privacy at Amazon, overseeing a broad portfolio of devices including Ring, Alexa, FireTV, Halo, Key and Sidewalk. She previously served as President of Ring, where she led all efforts related to the company’s privacy, security, and community partnerships.
“NNEDV is pleased to welcome Leila and Jennifer to the Board of Directors and we look forward to leveraging their experience to benefit our state and territorial member coalitions and the nearly 2,000 local programs they serve,” said Deborah J. Vagins, NNEDV President and CEO. “As technology evolves, it can create new opportunities for survivors to access resources, along with new avenues for abusers to cause harm. Jennifer’s and Leila’s respective expertise at the intersection of technology and safety will be critical to our work to prevent tech-facilitated abuse and support the empowered use of technology for survivors.”
Domestic violence impacts people across every community, and NNEDV strives to convene a Board representing a wealth of expertise and experience and reflecting the diversity of the people we serve. Each member of the NNEDV Board of Directors is fully dedicated to our purpose and mission, and acts prudently as stewards of our work and resources.
“The NNEDV Board of Directors has long been a group of visionaries, coming together to support survivors and the advocates, programs, and coalitions that serve them,” said Gloria Aguilera Terry, NNEDV Board Chair and CEO of the Texas Council on Family Violence. “Domestic violence does not happen in a silo, and this work requires us to build connections and work together across every sector of society that impacts survivors’ safety and well-being. I am thrilled that Jennifer and Leila are joining us and lending their valuable expertise to our work.”
