EMILYs List Announces Sarah Min to Join Board of Directors
WASHINGTON, D.C. — Today, EMILYs List announced that Sarah Min, a business leader and advocate for mission-driven organizations, was added as a new member to its Board of Directors. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, released the following statement:
“I’m thrilled to welcome Sarah Min to our Board of Directors. Sarah brings a wealth of knowledge and creative vision to our efforts to elect women through her proven advancement of mission-driven organizations, campaigns, and nonprofits. Sarah will provide critical insight and expertise in business strategy, marketing, and consumer engagement to help further our mission of electing more pro-choice Democratic women and women of color. Sarah’s organizational experience executing big content-driven visions for startups, and technology and creative teams will expand our ability to reach new communities. EMILYs List is proud to welcome Sarah as we work to create a government that truly represents and serves all Americans.”
In response to being asked to join the board, Min said, “Ellen recently told me that when she started EMILY's List, one of the main goals was for the women's vote to be taken seriously. For many of us today, that seems difficult to believe given how critical the women's vote is in any campaign. It is EMILY's List's ongoing vision and fortitude that has expanded that power by helping to elect women of all backgrounds in record-breaking numbers to mobilize women and support women. I am thrilled to join the board of EMILY's List at a time when Kamala Harris will be the first woman vice president of the United States, and as women continue to move into executive office and represent all our voices.”
In her business leadership roles, Sarah managed rapid expansion as president of McSweeney’s Publishing and served as executive vice president of corporate development and marketing at ScrollMotion, where she helped produce the first consumer apps in iTunes. She also serves on the board of directors of The High Line, Color of Change and her family foundation, which builds political and economic power for women and people of color.
Sarah’s understanding of culture trends and customer behavior are rooted in her decade long career as managing editor of iconic magazines such as Domino, Vibe and Glamour. She also has corporate development experience at the media conglomerate Bertelsmann, as well as serving as an independent consultant for clients including HBO and Penguin Random House. Sarah holds a BS in Journalism from the University of Illinois, Urbana-Champaign and an MBA from Columbia Business School.
EMILYs List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $700 million to elect pro-choice Democratic women candidates. With a grassroots community of over five million members, EMILY's List helps Democratic women win competitive campaigns – across the country and up and down the ballot – by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running nearly $50 million in independent expenditures in the last cycle alone, and turning out women voters and voters of color to the polls. Since our founding in 1985, we have helped elect the country's first woman as vice president, 157 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors, and more than 1,200 women to state and local office. More than 40 percent of the candidates EMILYs List has helped elect to Congress have been women of color. After the 2016 election, more than 60,000 women reached out to EMILY's List about running for office laying the groundwork for the next decade of candidates for local, state, and national offices. In our effort to elect more women in offices across the country, we have created our Run to Win program, expanded our training program, including a Training Center online, and trained thousands of women.
