Jodi Liggett is a proud native Arizonan and fierce women’s advocate.  A public policy expert, she has worked in both Republican and Democratic administrations, as well as the nonprofit and private sectors.  Jodi began her career at the Arizona State House of Representatives as Republican Committee Staff but soon moved on to the Governor’s Office of Jane Dee Hull as her Policy Adviser for Human Services for the duration of Hull’s administration.  After lobbying for private companies, she settled at the Arizona Foundation for Women moving from Director of Policy to CEO.  After 7 years at AFW, she joined Phoenix city government as Mayor Greg Stanton’s senior policy advisor.  When the opportunity arose to join the Planned Parenthood team, it was too good to pass up and she spent 6 years there ending as the Executive Director of Planned Parenthood Advocates AZ- the organizations electoral arm, and as Vice President of External Affairs for the medical side of the organization.  Most recently Jodi was Phoenix Mayor Kate Gallego’s Deputy Chief of Staff.  She is now incubating a women’s issues think tank and advocacy group- the Arizona Center for Women’s Advancement (ACWA).
