Jocelyn Samuels was Vice President for Education and Employment. She focused on barriers to the advancement of women and girls at school and in the workplace. Prior to joining NWLC, Ms. Samuels was Labor Counsel to Senator Edward M. Kennedy, and she also worked for a decade as a senior policy attorney at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission, where she specialized in issues of sex and race discrimination. Ms. Samuels is confident that with the help of Title IX and a little athletic talent, she could have been a star in a wholly different realm of courts.
