Change.org president and chief operating officer Jennifer Dulski joined Facebook as product leader for the social network’s groups team.

Chief product officer Chris Cox announced the hire in a Facebook post, saying, “This is a big day for us because we’ve been trying to recruit Jen for a long time. Many of you already know she’s a product star who’s focused on social impact. Recently she was president and COO of Change.org, where she spent five years scaling the company. Today she joins us as the product leader for the groups team and our big push around tools for communities and their leaders.”

Dulski chimed in with a post of her own, saying, in part, “At a time when our world seems increasingly divided and people are often feeling more alone, it is more important than ever to help people create and be part of communities that are meaningful to them—communities that teach us about each other and remind us of what we share rather than what pulls us apart. With more than 1 billion people already using Facebook groups and more than 100 million people already in very meaningful groups, I couldn’t be more excited to join the team that is making this possible.”

Prior to Change.org, Dulski served as global head of product management, shopping and product ads at Google; co-founder and CEO of The Dealmap, which was acquired by Google; and in various roles at Yahoo.
