Sameera Fazili and Mary Beth Maxwell join Equitable Growth’s Board of Directors
The Washington Center for Equitable Growth today announced the addition of two new members to its board of directors: Sameera Fazili, former deputy assistant to the president and deputy director of the National Economic Council, and Mary Beth Maxwell, executive director of Workshop.
Equitable Growth’s Board of Directors also includes former senior policymakers, business executives, and philanthropic leaders. Fazili and Maxwell will join Steve Daetz, president of the Sandler Foundation; Byron Auguste, CEO and co-founder of Opportunity@Work, and former deputy director of the National Economic Council in the Obama administration; and Ira Fishman, COO and managing director of the NFL Players Association.
“We are thrilled to welcome Sameera and Mary Beth to our Board of Directors,” said Daetz, Equitable Growth’s board chair. “Their extensive experience across government, academia, and advocacy make them well positioned to guide the organization as it provides policymakers with actionable, research-driven ideas and proposals to foster strong, stable, and broadly shared growth.”
