Phil at Oxford, where she was a Rhodes Scholar.As a senior fellow at the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, Rachel is a leading expert on how democracies – including the United States – can improve, with a particular focus on countries facing poor leadership, polarized populations, violence, and corruption.In 2010, Time magazine named Rachel one of the top 40 political leaders under 40 in America.

Under her leadership, the Truman Project assisted scores of national, state, and local candidates and elected officials, advocated for legislation nationally and in multiple states, and fostered a new generation of military veterans and national security leaders to advance policies that would enhance global security, democracy, and human dignity.Rachel serves on the boards of various for-profit companies and social sector organizations that align with her passion for issues on the intersections of security, human dignity, and empowerment.
