Join us on Tuesday, February 20, 2018 from 12:00pm-1:00pm in Old North 316 for free lunch for a GU Politics Spring Fellows Lunch with Dorothy McAuliffe and Katie Walsh Shields. Throughout the semester McCourt will host the GU Politics Fellows for intimate conversations on a variety of topics and news of the day. This is an opportunity for McCourt students to interact with the Fellows outside of the traditional discussion groups.
Dorothy McAuliffe is the former First Lady of Virginia. She has been an impactful advocate for women’s health, public safety, social justice, and equal opportunity for all Virginians, particularly Virginia’s children. As First Lady, she served as Chair of the Commonwealth Council on Bridging the Nutritional Divide and engaged stakeholders across the Virginia food system to seek solutions that eliminate childhood hunger, develop local agriculture, and empower community efforts linking locally grown food, education, health, and nutrition. In her role chairing the No Kid Hungry Virginia campaign, she has led efforts to improve school meal access and increased the number of school breakfasts served each year by more than 10 million.
Katie Walsh Shields is a political and public affairs consultant in Washington, DC with more than 10 years of experience working at the national political level, including presidential campaigns, national party committees and the White House. Shields served as White House Deputy Chief of Staff from January 2017 through March 2017, working as principal deputy to Chief of Staff Reince Priebus.
This event is co-sponsored by McCourt’s Women in Public Policy Initiative. We hope you can join us!
