Charmain Bogue (she/her) was appointed Executive Director and Advisor to the Founder/CEO of Women’s Campaign International (WCI) in January 2022, a global nonprofit that works to increase and support women and girls to lead in politics, peacebuilding, and advocacy. WCI serves communities and works with women and girls in 45 countries worldwide.
Before her current efforts, Charmain supported various roles within the federal service, gaining monumental expertise involving cross-functional leadership and positioning advanced growth innovations while remaining federally compliant. Coupled with that, Charmain also served on the National Science and Technology Council Federal Coordination in STEM Education Committee with a core goal to help expand investments in STEM education programs across federal agencies. She also supported the White House Gender Policy Council on their efforts to develop domestic and foreign policies, programs, and communication strategies to ensure federal agencies advance gender equity and equality – core leadership and business trajectory pillars she has since leveraged in the private sector to help cultivate positive growth/scaling reform within that landscape as well.
Charmain began her journey by earning a Bachelor of Science in Psychology from Morgan State University and a Master of Science in Rehabilitation Counseling from Hofstra University. In addition, Charmain expanded her education with coinciding professional certifications at Harvard Kennedy School, the University of North Carolina Kenan-Flagler Business School, and George Washington University Center for Excellence in Public Leadership.
Charmain’s ongoing commitments from then to now have not gone unnoticed, as she was awarded Service to Citizens HillVets 100 in 2019, the Service To The Citizens Public Service Award in 2020, the Bill Pearson Outstanding Lifetime Achievement Award in 2021, and Marquis Who’s Who Award for Women Leaders in 2022.
