USC’s Center for the Political Future (CPF) announced that Lionsgate Television Group Chair Kevin Beggs, a 23-year veteran of the studio’s senior management team, has joined its high-level Board of Councilors.
“The Center does great work in creating bipartisan dialogue and bridging our country’s deep divides,” said Beggs. “I’m excited to help it extend its reach at a particularly critical inflection point in our national conversation on policy, social justice and racial equality.”
Beggs joins existing CPF Board members Senator Barbara Boxer, Wendy Abrams, Lisa Korbatov, and Hope Warschaw.
The Center plans to add another Board member by the end of this year and expand to 10 Board members by the end of calendar 2022 in order to grow its current successful programs, create new ones, increase opportunities for students and carry out its mandate to educate and train future generations of political leaders.
“Our Board is a crucial pillar of the Center. It allows us to further our mission and open up more opportunities for our students,” said CPF Director Robert Shrum. “Kevin is a leading media executive who has been a great supporter of the Center, and we’re excited that he'll be an even more integral part of our work going forward.”
Those who are interested in serving on the Board should consider joining one of CPF’s Center Leadership Circles and contacting CPF Executive Director Kamy Akhavan (firstname.lastname@example.org).
