Annie Rorem

Director of Policy and Research


Annie is the Director of Policy and Research for the National Women’s Business Council.  To this role, she brings a background in quantitative analysis, the belief that good public policy requires good data, and a desire to better understand—and improve—the experiences of women in the labor force.

Prior to joining NWBC, Annie was a research and policy analyst in the Demographics Research Group at the University of Virginia’s Weldon Cooper Center for Public Service.  In that position, she conducted demographic data analysis for a wide variety of locality, state, and private clients.  In addition, she authored several reports on poverty and the social safety net, and wrote frequently about gendered income disparities. 

Annie holds a Master of Arts in mathematics from Wesleyan University, where she also completed her undergraduate education, as well as a Master of Public Policy from The Frank Batten School of Leadership and Public Policy at the University of Virginia.  She currently serves as the chair of the Batten Alumni Advisory Board.  In recent years, Annie has been awarded the Leadership Excellence award from the Batten School and was named Top 30 Thinker Under 30 by Pacific Standard Magazine.
