Manager

she/her

Anna Wilcoxson manages research and analysis on the Research, Evaluation, and Modernizing Government team. After completing her PhD in Sociology from Michigan State University, with a focus on labor research, Anna joined the State of Michigan’s Labor Market Information team. It was through this experience working with federal, state, and local agencies on labor and education programs she saw areas of need for improvement. Anna joined the Partnership excited to research ways to improve governmental outcomes and the public’s trust in their government. Anna’s favorite civil servant is Janet Yellen, who faced significant barriers in academia and the workforce and overcame these obstacles to become the first female chair of the Federal Reserve. Because of Ms. Yellen’s tenacity, it was possible for future generations of women, like Anna, to engage in academic pursuits more freely.
