Welcome to The Minority Leaders, a podcast highlighting the journeys of women of color changemakers in politics and policymaking. We occasionally feature women in business and the nonprofit community who have made significant contributions to global or domestic policy debates.
I’m your host, Algene Sajery: a foreign policy and national security expert, Capitol Hill veteran, former political campaign operative, and currently a Vice President of External Affairs and Head of Global Gender Equity Initiatives in the federal government. *The views expressed by me on this podcast are solely my own.
I created this podcast to highlight the journeys of women of color politicians, staffers, advocates, policy experts, and influencers in DC. It is a safe space for dialogue about the challenges and opportunities that women of color, and sometimes women in general face in policymaking and politics.
As the first woman of color to serve as policy director -or in any senior leadership role- on the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee, I am dedicated to increasing woman and minority representation in national policymaking and politics. I previously served on the Executive Committee of the Leadership Council for Women in National Security. I am also a member of Women of Color Advancing Peace and Security, the Black Women’s Congressional Alliance, Black Professionals in International Affairs, and Delta Sigma Theta Sorority, Inc.
This podcast is my love letter to the next generation of women of color political and policymaking leaders. It is a clarion call to women leaders to keep breaking every lass ceiling in our paths, because America desperately needs us!
