Elizabeth (Liz) Rose has joined the Economic Policy Institute as Director of Communications. Rose comes to EPI with twenty years of strategic communications experience in government, Congress and the non-profit sector.
Rose will manage EPI’s media relations, publications and web teams. She will oversee the dissemination and promotion of the institute’s highly-regarded research across traditional and new media platforms and work to grow EPI’s voice as an advocate for low- and middle-income Americans and their families.
“Liz brings a bundle of energy and enthusiasm, as well as a wealth of experience,” said EPI President Lawrence Mishel. “It will be exciting to watch her steer the department and expand the reach of our already stellar communications efforts. EPI is lucky to have her.”
Prior to joining EPI, Rose was the Communications Director for the Campaign for America’s Future. Rose also served as the Director of Public Affairs for the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). Before her tenure at the FCC, Rose was a public affairs officer at the U.S. Department of Labor under Secretary Robert Reich. Rose was also the Media Relations Director for the U.S. Holocaust Memorial Museum when it opened in 1993, and served as a press secretary on Capitol Hill for Senator John D. Rockefeller, IV (D-WV) and Rep. Thomas J. Downey (D-NY).
