Sara Cornish has always been a passionate communicator and organizer, even as a third grader, when she furiously scribbled letters for a Save Lake Tahoe campaign. These days she focuses on corporate social innovation, creating impact-driven strategies for cross-sector communication and partnerships. She works on the Communications and Partnerships team at United Nations Global Pulse, a UN research and innovation lab that explores ways to use big data for development. Sara graduated from Vassar College with a BA in Urban Studies and worked for several years afterwards at NYC agencies, developing brand identities for global healthcare clients including Pfizer, Lilly, Nestlé, and Medtronic. She came to DSI seeking new ways to use identity and design to make a social impact. She lives in Brooklyn and in her free time captains a women’s ultimate frisbee team, leads marketing for her neighborhood food co-op, and hosts dinner parties and dance parties.
