    #35: Mothers in Politics with Arkansas City Councilwoman Gayatri Agnew, Part 2

    Local politics is not only the level where the most tangible legislative change can be made, but also the level where most people entering politics will start. So for those reasons, we’re devoting two episodes to a discussion with someone who threw her hat into the local ring, won, and is now sharing all her insider advice. In the latest in our ongoing series on Mothers in Politics and our Season 2 finale, we have Part 2 of our interview with Arkansas City Councilwoman Gayatri Agnew. She's talking about what she knows now that she wishes she knew then, her goals for her time in office, and why she thinks you should join her. If you missed it, catch Part 1 in Episode 34 first!
    Gayatri Agnew serves on the leadership team of Walmart’s Global Responsibility division where she leads strategy and philanthropy for Walmart’s efforts on economic mobility. She is currently a Presidential Leadership Scholar and serves on the national boards for the Vote Mama Foundation and Path Forward. She is a former board member of the Center for Women and Democracy and has previously served as a Clinton Fellow with the American India Foundation, working on reskilling in India. In December 2020, she was elected to the Bentonville, Arkansas City Council.  She lives in Bentonville, AR with her husband, Ryan, and their two young children, Rohan and Kamala.

Practical tips

Full of practical tips from Drs Varghese-Kroll and Falusi. Great to have them discuss and guide listeners through different topics, especially during this time where information is plentiful but needs expertise to make useful. They provide such a fun way to listen and learn.

Hippocratic Hosts

Dr. Falusi and Dr. Varghese-Kroll are on the cutting edge of motherhood and medicine. They bring their wit and wisdom to every episode and bring us the voices we need to hear. I always learn new things and consider new perspectives when I listen to their show and I recommend it to fellow moms and physicians. And dads too! It’s for everyone!
