The Washington Post has announced that Emefa Agawu will be joining its Editorial Board.
She will write editorials on social policy, with an emphasis on developments in state capitals and big cities around the country, and on other issues.
“Since joining the board in March for a three-month fellowship, Emefa has proved to be an invaluable contributor to board discussions,” said Fred Hiatt, editorial page editor for The Post. “She is a thoughtful, passionate, clear-thinking writer of editorials; and a creative, generous colleague.”
Agawu most recently has been pursuing a Master’s degree at the University of Oxford in comparative government.
Previously she was a fellow in New America’s Cybersecurity Initiative, where she also led the initiative’s work on cybersecurity policy at the state and local level, with a focus on election cybersecurity. She received a BA in political science from Yale College in 2015.
Agawu will begin her new role in early July.
