TFAS is pleased to announce a new addition to its prestigious Board of Regents.
Andrea Browne-Phillips ’04, PPF ’07, has been involved with TFAS for nearly 17 years. She first participated in the Public Policy + Economics program track in 2004, where she immediately stood out as an engaged and dedicated student. Browne-Phillips returned to TFAS in 2007 as a member of the inaugural class of TFAS Public Policy Fellows, alongside fellow new Regent Joe Lai ’01, PPF ’07.
Browne-Phillips currently serves as the manager of the Diversity & Inclusion Branch at the National Guard Bureau. A dynamic authority on strategic approaches to values driven leadership, Browne-Phillips is committed to developing approaches for public, private and philanthropic mission driven organizations with a focus on optimizing business outcomes, through inclusion, equity and leveraging diversity.
Browne-Phillips was with the Aspen Institute for more than a decade and served as the assistant director of the Aspen Environment Forum, a public forum dedicated to our shared natural environment presented in partnership by the Aspen Institute and National Geographic. She helped design and launch the Aspen Security Forum and the Aspen Ideas Festival in Colorado, as well as the Aspen Forum on Cultural Diplomacy Paris, France, and Avilés, Spain.
Having spent so much time in TFAS programs, Browne-Phillips realized how vital TFAS’s mission is. She decided to help TFAS in a new capacity as a member of the Alumni Council, a position she held from 2008 to 2014. This position allowed her to reach a wider audience of young leaders and connect with the alumni network.
Andrea has been a member of the TFAS family for more than 15 years – first as a student, then as a part of our continuing education programs, and finally as an alumni volunteer… I know she will continue to advance the TFAS mission in her new role.” – Michelle Le ’95, ’96
Browne-Phillips has also participated in TFAS’s continuing education programs including a Curriculum of Liberty Seminar on Liberty and Philanthropy. In addition to her involvement with TFAS, Browne-Phillips is an Aspen Institute Socrates Fellow and a Fellow of the International Career Advancement Program.
Her extensive career experience and involvement with TFAS programs positions her as an invaluable new member of the Board of Regents. Vice President of International and Alumni Programs Michelle Le ’95, ’96 said, “I was thrilled to hear that Andrea was elected to serve on our TFAS Board of Regents. Andrea has been a member of the TFAS family for more than 15 years – first as a student, then as a part of our continuing education programs, and finally as an alumni volunteer. She served on our Alumni Council for years, and her perspective and advice were always so welcome. I know her new colleagues on the Board of Regents will also appreciate her voice, and I know she will continue to advance the TFAS mission in her new role.”
