COREY WESTOVER

Corey Westover has built a professional career advocating for sexual and reproductive health and justice, particularly for marginalized and oppressed communities. “My professional career has been dedicated to eliminating health disparities, working at the intersections of racial, economic, reproductive, and gender justice,” she says. Her commitment to health equity is evident in all aspects of her work. Westover began her career in research but, wanting to be more connected to the community, pivoted to working in direct services, providing counseling and education around sexual health. In her current role as Senior Director of Equity and Learning at The LGBT Community Center (The Center) in New York City, she is developing and implementing a multi-year strategy to embed race and gender equity in The Center’s policies, practices, programs, and culture. As a queer woman and parent, Westover’s identities have deeply shaped how she views the world and her role in it, and how she shows up in her work. As a white cisgender woman, she acknowledges the impact of her privileged identities, and feels “a deep responsibility for dismantling white supremacy and improving conditions for BIPOC and TGNC members of our community.” Beyond her work, Westover is a skilled crafter and enjoys making things with her hands. From pottery to stained glass, metalsmithing to baking, she finds joy in learning new skills and creating new things. But it’s her commitment to sexual and reproductive health equity and her dedication to serving marginalized communities that make her an inspiring leader in her field.
