Autumn A. Arnett

Communications Director

Autumn A. Arnett has been aware of gender differences in elected officials since she was a child, and is excited to be able to leverage over 15 years of communications experience to help get more women in office.  

Autumn is passionate about weaving data with compelling narratives to tell stories that represent the voices that have traditionally been silenced. Autumn’s professional background includes stints as communications chief for education and social service nonprofits, as well as time spent as editors of national publications, including U.S. News and World Report, Education Dive, and Diverse: Issues In Higher Education. She is the founder of A Black Child Can, a nonprofit that focuses on research, policy, and programming to improve the educational experiences of Black children, and the author of Let’s Stop Calling it an Achievement Gap. Autumn is a professional member of the American Consortium for Equity in Education, a member of the Austin Black Leaders Collective, and an advisory board member for the American Council on Education’s research on race. She is a Maryland native, a Clark Atlanta University alumna, and the proud mommy of Alexander and Jordyn, who give her daily reasons to fight for a better America.
