Sanah Baig is Chief of Staff at the Good Food Institute (GFI) where she manages its strategic planning, execution, and evaluation efforts. She serves as chief connector and integrator on the leadership team, focused primarily on building cohesion and delivering results. Sanah brings both federal and local government-related expertise to her role at GFI, where she works with the leadership team to execute the organization’s global strategic vision. She previously was a program director at the National Association of Counties where she managed more than a dozen grant-funded programs designed to increase local governments’ capacity for resilience and economic development planning.

Prior to that, Sanah spent nearly six years during the Obama Administration serving as a political appointee at USDA in a variety of capacities, including as an advisor to the Secretary of Agriculture on place-based and rural infrastructure investments and as the Acting Deputy White House Liaison. Most recently, Sanah served on the Biden–Harris Transition Team as a member of the USDA Agency Review Team.

Sanah’s talk will touch on all of this experience and underscore the value of government service. It is open to all and pre-registration is required.
