Today is my last day as the vice president for communications and policy outreach at CGD. It’s been almost 10 years to the day since I joined CGD as director of communications in the modest offices at 1776 Massachusetts Ave. In that time my children have grown up and left home and CGD has moved twice, including last year’s move to our current premises at the corner of L and 21st Street. I began recording the Global Prosperity Wonkcasts in 2009, and have since done hundreds of these short policy interviews with CGD researchers and guests. I have learned a bunch and had a blast, and I will miss my friends and colleagues here, even though my new employer, World Resources Institute (WRI), is just across town.
