The Wilson Policy Council

Co-Chaired by Cathy Saunders, Head of Corporate Sustainability and Public Policy at Putnam Investments, and Ozzie Palomo, Founding Partner and Managing Director of Chartwell Strategy Group, the Wilson Policy Council is comprised of Wilson Center benefactors who understand the critical role that nonpartisan, fact-based research has on policy throughout the world. As a member of The Wilson Policy Council, individuals and corporations have the unique opportunity to engage with Wilson Center leadership and promote sound discussion not only on a global scale but within their own communities, industries, and foundations.
