Fatima Goss Graves is Vice President for Education and Employment.

She focuses on barriers to the advancement of women and girls at school and in the workplace. Prior to joining NWLC, she worked as an appellate and trial litigator at Mayer Brown LLP. She began her career as a law clerk to Judge Diane P. Wood on the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Seventh Circuit. She is a graduate of Yale Law School and the University of California at Los Angeles.

When not fighting for equal opportunities in education and employment, Fatima is typically reading, jogging, playing tennis or watching reality television (although far less since she had her baby – something had to give!).
