Annie Maxwell: A lifetime of engagement

May 13, 2012

From hosting summer interns to hiring quality Ford School graduates, Annie Maxwell, Chief Operating Officer of the Skoll Global Threats Fund, has made a steadfast commitment to the success of current Ford School students and shows no signs of stopping. While an MPP student, Annie interned with the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. When she needed support for everything from resume writing to identifying career goals, she got the help she needed from Graduate Career Services. It's a debt she and other alums don't mind paying back. Annie previously served as chair and vice chair of the Ford School's Alumni Board. In 2010, she came back to the Ford School to share her experiences as a White House Fellow in the Office of Vice President Joe Biden, where she focused on implementation of the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act. Last summer, she co-hosted the San Francisco Bay Area celebration of Worldwide Ford School Spirit Day. "Now I'm a part of an alumni community that is committed to staying engaged with current students."
