Former White House Staffer Diana Doukas joins Libra Group
Libra Group has appointed Diana Doukas as Director of Social Responsibility based at its Washington, D.C., office. She joins after most recently serving as the Director of the White House Business Council and Policy Advisor for President Obama.
Diana will hold an international remit helping to lead Libra’s philanthropic activities. The Libra Social Responsibility division manages ten programmes and initiatives which seek to deliver educational opportunity, business opportunity, and acts of humanity towards people who are neglected, marginalized or under-served. A Villanova alumna, her role at the White House entailed engagement with business leaders, entrepreneurs and innovators. She was a core team member for several of the Administrations’ top policy priorities including international trade, entrepreneurship, workforce development and small business policies. Diana worked closely with White House Senior Advisors to provide input and to develop creative public-private partnerships to address complex issues.
“We welcome Diana to the group. She brings a great network and impressive experience in the public policy space. This will be of great value to Libra and all that we do, both here in the U.S. and around the world,” said Jimmy Athanasopoulos, Libra Group Head of Social Responsibility.
“Libra is a wide-ranging and influential company with both international presence and a social conscience,” commented Diana Doukas. “I’m really excited to be joining at this time and being a part of its many social programmes which bring so much capital to society.”
