U.S. Department of State Under Secretary for Political Affairs Wendy Ruth Sherman holds the third highest-ranking position in the U.S. Department of State. Her experiential credits include working as a social worker, director of EMILY’s list (acronym for “Early Money Is Like Yeast”, a political action committee that helps elect pro-choice Democratic Party female candidates to office), director of the State of Maryland’s office of child welfare, and founding president of the Fannie Mae Foundation. The William Jefferson Clinton government employed her as Counselor of the United States Department of State and Special Advisor to the President and Secretary of State and North Korea Policy Coordinator. Well beyond her qualifications, she was, under Clinton, “instrumental in negotiations related to North Korea’s nuclear weapon and ballistic missile programs.” She holds undergraduate and graduate degrees in sociology and urban studies, and social work from Boston and Maryland universities.
