    Episode 1: Kyleigh Russ, Govern for America

    Episode 1: Kyleigh Russ, Govern for America

    In this episode, Miriam Miller talks with Govern for America founder and Forbes 30 under 30 recipient, Kyleigh Russ, about imposter syndrome, being a young entrepreneur, and how to get involved in the public sector during the COVID-19 crisis.

    Kyleigh Russ is Co-Founder and COO of Govern for America. Upon graduating from college with a degree in Government, Kyleigh taught at a charter school in Boston. There she saw what can happen when underrepresented communities do not have their voices heard in policy making - programs and decisions don't actually address underlying, systemic issues that communities are facing. With her co-founder, she created Govern for America in order to construct clearer pathways into state and county government for the next generation of diverse talent. Govern for America imagines a world where our most dynamic young leaders see government as an avenue for meaningful change, and government reflects the values and diversity of the nation.
