Chief Community Impact Officer

Renée Boothroyd brings extensive experience in public health and implementation science to her role as Chief Community Impact Officer. For over 25 years, Renee has worked with community, state, federal, and philanthropic partners to facilitate getting evidence about “what works” into real-world practice to improve the health and well-being of children and families. She worked for 15 years with the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and Frank Porter Graham Child Development Institute to help organizations develop their own resources and abilities to host and maintain improvements in child welfare practice. Across other human service systems, she has led multi-site technical assistance projects that help states support communities in “what it takes” for effective implementation practice. Renee’s approach to improving population-level outcomes consistently focuses on investing in community strengths and relationships for partnership and engagement and using data for understanding and improvement. She is committed to social justice and partnering with differently resourced communities to ensure equity in implementation.
