From January 2013 to January 2017, Erica served as the 14th Commissioner of the US Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), commuting down from Great Neck to DC each week. The BLS is the principal federal statistical agency responsible for measuring labor market activity, working conditions and inflation in the US economy. With a budget of about $600 million and employment of about 2,400, it produces the monthly jobs report and a wide range of economic indicators that are used by businesses, policymakers and private citizens to make some of their most important decisions. In her talk, Erica will tell stories and share insights into how our government works, the importance of reliable data, and the role of a leader.
