Nancy Glass' research focuses on improving safety, health, and economic security, and addressing gender inequity in diverse community and clinic settings.
She has collaborated with global experts, including UNICEF, World Bank, and the U.S. Department of State to implement and evaluate prevention programs that challenge social norms that sustain violence against women in Somalia and South Sudan. She has also helped examine the prevalence of gender-based violence in the three regions of Somalia (South Central, Puntland, and Somaliland). Glass also works with survivors of gender-based violence among displaced and refugee populations in Kenya.
Her international initiatives, including Pigs for Peace and Rabbits for Resilience, have helped families in the Democratic Republic of Congo improve their health, economic stability, and social outcomes. Her myPlan smartphone application has helped women across the world identify action plans to safety if they are experiencing intimate partner violence.
