The Gordon School

Tavie Abell ’06

Why yes, that was Tavie Abell ’06 (above) on the podcast Radical Ones, “where ​modern day heroes share how they’re solving our largest problems,” talking about how to make the US government younger and smarter. Tavie, a Forbes Magazine “30 under 30” honoree, is co-founder and CEO of Govern for America, which recruits and trains young leaders to take on leadership roles in local and national government.

Why yes, that was Gordon parent Shideh Shafie sharing the Catalyst Award, given annually by the Academy for Women in Academic Emergency Medicine “to honor female faculty who have made outstanding contributions through clinical work, teaching, mentorship, role modeling, or administration with great local or regional impact.” Shafie is an Assistant Professor of Emergency Medicine and Clinician Educator at Brown University, and she brought Gordon students together with Lifespan for the Windows of Healing project this winter.
