The Governance Program focuses on principled leadership and effective governance by supporting approaches that help our elected leaders deliberate, negotiate, and serve the American people. Our team is looking for candidates who have a strong understanding about how Congress and other governing institutions function and are passionate about ensuring those institutions work effectively in the face of increasing polarization.
