CI, which has about $200M in net assets, focuses on issues like climate change, food security and clean water through a lens of sustainability.

Goldthwaite exits a senior director of strategy and innovation post at Women for Women International, a DC non-profit that aids women survivors of war.

At CI, she leads all marketing and communications, including partnerships, brand positioning and message development for the group.

Prior to WWI, Goldthwaite was VP/mktg. and comms. for the Clinton Bush Haiti Fund and previously served at the World Wildlife Fund and in corporate posts at MCI.

CI, with its substantial fundraising and spending, has taken some criticism in the past for partnering with companies like BP, ExxonMobil, Nestle and McDonald's on environmental projects.
