Mumbi Mwangi, associate professor in Women’s Studies, was invited by the White House Office of Public Engagement to attend the White House Community Leaders Briefing Series in August. In addition to the White House session, participants in the series had an opportunity to visit an agency headquarters to engage in a more specific issue-based briefing. Mwangi’s expertise as a policy consultant is based on the training she received in the Policy Fellows Program at the Humphrey School of Public Policy, University of Minnesota. Mwangi also recently launched the Journal of Global Gender Issues, a publication for works that offer global perspectives in exploring gender issues.
