Women's Refugee Commission Mourns Death of Robin Fray Carey

December 18, 2015--The board and staff of the Women's Refugee Commission expressed their great sadness today on the news of the death of Robin Fray Carey. 

Robin joined the board of the WRC in 2005. She chaired the advocacy and communications committee, and from 2010 to 2013 served as co-chair of the board. Robin participated in strategic planning for the organization, and worked with staff and the board to adopt new technologies and to galvanize the group’s advocacy efforts in Washington. In 2007, she participated in an assessment mission to Uganda, meeting with refugee women and humanitarian agencies to learn of refugees’ reproductive health needs.

“Robin Fray Carey was a true champion of refugee women and children,” said Sarah Costa, executive director of the Women's Refugee Commission. “She played a key leadership role during a time of rapid growth at the organization, and provided valuable guidance in the development of the WRC’s social media.”

Robin founded Social Media Today LLC, a media company that brings together many of the world’s best thinkers about business and policy topics, in 2007. Prior to that, she ran her own media consulting company for 16 years, and worked with Time Inc, Newsweek, BusinessWeek and Ziff-Davis.

She was a member of the Overseers of the International Rescue Committee.
