Adrienne Mahsa Varkiani is the Program Director for the Rights and Inclusion team. Prior to this, she was a senior editor at ThinkProgress, where she worked with the newsroom's policy reporters. She has also served as an editor at Muftah Magazine and worked in the Iranian American community. She is tired of the debate around objectivity in journalism, and is more interested in whose voices are being left out of the conversation.
Varkiani received her master of science in international relations from the London School of Economics and Political Science and her bachelor’s degree in international studies from American University in Washington, D.C. Her work has appeared in Mic, Slate, Teen Vogue, Extra Crispy, and others. If you have a very good baked goods recipe, you should send it to her.
