About Kay Coles James:
Kay C. James has served as the president of The Heritage Foundation, America’s premier conservative think tank, since 2018. She has also served as a trustee of the board since 2005.
Throughout her tenure at Heritage, she has been dedicated to helping formulate and promote solutions to the many issues Americans face—from fighting poverty to improving our schools and our health care system to reducing the size and scope of government. These public policy solutions are developed under her direction as president and are based on the principles of individual freedom, limited government, free enterprise, traditional American values, and a strong national defense.
With an unwavering commitment to Heritage’s members, its board and staff, and to the American people, Mrs. James has pushed the organization to new heights. Under her leadership, for three years in a row, Heritage has been named the No. 1 think tank in the world for its impact on public policy by the University of Pennsylvania’s Think Tanks and Civil Societies Program, the world’s leading authority on the role policy institutes play in governments and civil societies around the globe.
One of her great passions has been guiding Heritage in its outreach and sharing of its message with young people, minorities, and women who don’t necessarily consider themselves conservative but who practice conservative principles in their own lives. Read Mrs. James’ full bio here.
