The Endometriosis Foundation of America is thrilled to welcome our new Executive Director, Margaret C. Cianci.
Before joining EndoFound, Ms. Cianci was the Founding Executive Director of the Alliance for Cancer Gene Therapy (ACGT), the only national nonprofit organization exclusively dedicated to innovative cell and gene therapy research for cancer. Ms. Cianci grew the organization from a start-up to a nationally recognized nonprofit for cancer research.
Prior to working in the nonprofit sector, Ms. Cianci held management positions in banking, financial services, and communications at Bankers Trust Co., Chase, and HBO. Ms. Cianci holds an MPA in public and nonprofit management and policy from NYU's Robert F. Wagner Graduate School of Public Service, an MBA from Columbia University, and a BA from Colgate University.
Ms. Cianci's experience in strategic planning, program development, governance, fundraising, and financial oversight will be critical in growing EndoFound to create even more awareness and education among the medical community and the public.
"I am honored to lead this organization,” Ms. Cianci said, “which in ten short years, has contributed significantly to raising awareness of a disease that affects so many with devastating symptoms and is so difficult to recognize.”
Among her many community activities, Ms. Cianci serves on the board of Women Creating Change, formerly the Women's City Club of New York. In addition to having served on the strategic planning, audit, and development committees, Ms. Cianci is the Founding Chair of the Governance Committee.
Join us in welcoming Ms. Cianci, who is uniquely committed towards increasing disease recognition, providing advocacy, and supporting landmark research. We’re honored to have Ms. Cianci steering the ship towards bringing endometriosis patients the recognition and treatment they deserve.
