WCSA Diversity and Inclusion Director (NEW) Candidate Statements (2 positions available):


Maisha Imam


My name is Maisha Imam and I kindly ask for your vote for Diversity & Inclusion Co-Chair of the Women’s Congressional Staff Association. I am currently the Staff Assistant/Office Manager for Congressman Jim Costa of California. As Cofounder of the DC Chapter of the Muslim Women’s Professional Network, I promote organizations like WCSA. I post about WCSA on our Facebook group which has over 300 professionals. In this role, I had the opportunity to pitch ideas to the board such as a film screening of Knock Down the House. As intern coordinator, I encourage all my interns to attend WCSA’s events. I am a mentor for College to Congress, mentoring low-income, high achieving interns. I lead by example by attending WCSA’s happy hours and annual Summer Conference. I attribute my success to WCSA for helping me with my job hunt. Thanks to WCSA, I was employed before graduating from college. I am an active member in the Congressional South Asian American Staff Association and amongst Muslim Hill Staffers. I aim to mitigate between WCSA and other organizations. With my leadership, I will increase mentorship, access to resources, and events that include everyone. I have no qualms about being Diversity & Inclusion Co-Chair. WCSA has allowed me to work for the government and foster friendships along the way. If elected, I will advocate on the behalf of those who are underrepresented. With confidence, I look forward to working with the board.
