StacI Fox

In this conversation Planned Parenthood Southeast CEO Staci Fox and I talk about the organization, intersectionality among social justice groups, and what you don't know about Planned Parenthood, but should. 

Staci Fox serves as president and chief executive officer (CEO) for Planned Parenthood Southeast (PPSE). PPSE is a nonprofit organization that provides vital reproductive health care, sex education, and information to people across Georgia, Alabama, and Mississippi. Staci also serves as president and CEO of Planned Parenthood Southeast Advocates, a 501(c)4 organization, and as Chair of the Vote Choice Steering Committee, a PAC focused on electing candidates who support reproductive choice.

Staci has been a leader in the fields of family planning and reproductive health for more than 20 years, having previously served as president and CEO for Planned Parenthood of North Florida. A native of Georgia, Staci returned to her home state in 2013 to lead PPSE. Since that time, Staci has guided the organization through numerous political attacks and economic hurdles, while ensuring PPSE’s patients continue to have access to quality, non-judgemental care - no matter what.

Staci is a graduate of the University of Georgia. She is also an alumna of Leadership Atlanta and the Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management program at Harvard Business School.
