January 26, 2012

Save The Bay, the oldest and largest regional organization working to protect and restore San Francisco Bay, is pleased to announce its recent hire of Njambi Good as Chief Strategy Officer. Good has more than 15 years of experience managing teams, developing advocacy campaigns, and mobilizing and training volunteers. She will lead the organization’s efforts to significantly improve the health of San Francisco Bay, working with the Executive Director, Board of Directors and senior staff to create, implement and achieve Save The Bay’s strategic vision. 

"We are thrilled that Njambi will help our team tackle emerging threats to San Francisco Bay by seizing opportunities to make it healthier for people and wildlife," said Save The Bay Executive Director David Lewis. "Her talents and experience will help ensure the organization is strategic and effective for another 50 years." 

"I was attracted to Save The Bay because of its mission and history of effectiveness and achievement; and I am excited to join such a talented team of staff and volunteers," Good said. "My work will focus on growing the organization, and strengthening our advocacy campaigns to stop bayfill, prevent harmful pollution and re-establish 100,000 acres of healthy wetlands around the Bay."

Before joining Save The Bay, Good worked at Amnesty International USA for more than five years where she directed the organization's priority advocacy campaign, managed their national student and youth program, and served on the leadership team for a major strategic planning process. Prior to that, she worked at the Nature Conservancy's global headquarters lobbying on conservation funding and policy measures, and providing training to staff in the field. She also has worked as a consultant for clients such as Futures Without Violence, the Rights Working Group, and the Rockwood Leadership Institute. Good was selected as a Human Rights Fellow by the Open Society Institute in 2010 and holds a Bachelor of Arts degree in History and Political Science from Virginia Tech.

"I had my first experience with conservation work in high school through a program to restore and clean up the Chesapeake Bay, and I have been committed to the work ever since," Good said.
