Yale-in-Washington is thrilled to announce:
A Conversation with Susan Molinari, Vice President of Public Policy & Government Affairs, Americas
As vice president of public policy and government affairs, Susan leads Google’s public policy and government relations efforts in North and South America.
Prior to joining Google in 2012, Susan was the founder and chair of Susan Molinari Strategies LLC. Previously, she was a senior principal in the government relations, advocacy and strategy section of Bracewell & Giuliani LLP in Washington, D.C. and chair and CEO of The Washington Group.
Susan served as a U.S. Representative from 1990 to 1997. In 1994, a few weeks after the election of the first GOP House majority in 40 years, Susan was elected by her colleagues to the eight-person Republican Majority Leadership, making her the highest-ranking woman in the Congress. As a member of the House Budget Committee, she was at the forefront of producing Congress’ first balanced budget in 29 years. Susan chaired the Transportation and Infrastructure Committee’s Railroad Subcommittee, which passed legislation to overhaul the nation’s Amtrak passenger rail service. As chair, she also implemented the transition of the Interstate Commerce Commission to the Surface Transportation Board, and played a key role in fashioning the historic, five-year, multi-billion dollar transportation-funding bill (TEA-21) adopted in 1997.
Prior to serving in Congress, Susan was twice elected to the New York City Council, where she was Minority Leader.
Susan is an author and lecturer who has appeared regularly on cable and broadcast networks as a media and political analyst. Susan received her master’s degree from the State University of New York at Albany in 1982 and a bachelor’s degree from State University of New York at Albany in 1980.
