A Seat at the Table: Stories and lessons from UMD alumni is a new series featuring alumni from the College of Behavioral and Social Sciences at the University of Maryland, representing an array of industries and organizations. This series focuses on what it means to have a "seat at the table?" How does one get there? Who are your table guests? And how do you use your voice and influence within your organization once at the table? Through this program, we highlight BSOS alumni in mid to senior positions and learn from their leadership and personal experiences. This month's program will focus on Policy Professionals.
Featured Alumni Panelists:
- Usman Ahmed, Head of Global Public Policy, PayPal
- Graciela Aponte-Diaz, Director of Federal Campaigns, Center for Responsible Lending
- Ilana Cohen, Health Insurance Policy, U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS)
- Alex Nock, Principal, Penn Hill Group
Moderated by Dr. Will Reed, Professor and Chair of the Department of Government and Politics at the University of Maryland.
