Deputy Director for Communications
Nonprofit; 11-50 employees; Think Tanks industry
September 2007 – August 2013 (6 years) washington d.c. metro area
Third Way is a think tank that answers America’s challenges with modern ideas aimed at the center. We advocate for private-sector economic growth, a tough and smart centrist security strategy, a clean energy revolution, and progress on divisive social issues, all through a moderate-led U.S. politics.
With a staff of 40 and four policy programs, including Economics, National Security, Clean Energy, and Social Policy & Politics, our work includes: drafting and marketing concise and easy-to-use issue papers and reports; conducting original public opinion research and writing politically savvy strategy and framing memos; and hosting briefings, “Idea Forums,” and trainings for advocates, thought-leaders, and government officials.
Unlike traditional think tanks, which focus on producing academic-oriented papers, we aggressively market our ideas to policymakers and advocates to maximize their impact on the national debate. Third Way’s policy and political work has been incorporated into President Obama’s State of the Union addresses, introduced in more than fifty bills in Congress, included as part of major bipartisan budget deals and the President’s Deficit Commission recommendations, cited by the Vice President’s Task Force on the Middle Class, and used by dozens of candidates, from first-time House candidates to the Senate Majority Leader.
Many in the media have noted our impact, including: David Brooks (on the economy), POLITICO (on immigration and health care reform), The New Yorker (on abortion), Joe Klein (on security), EJ Dionne (on the culture divide), The New York Times (on the role of moderates), The Wall Street Journal (on economic growth), The Washington Post (on energy reform), as well as NPR, and all of the broadcast and cable television networks.
