Saima Anjam, Vice President at The Parkside Group, Highlighted Amongst New York’s Most Powerful Women by City & State

From City & State:
"Forget the old “three men in a room” that used to rule in Albany. With Gov. Kathy Hochul’s history-making ascension, it’s now two women and one man in a room. And that’s just one of the many ways that female political leaders have continued to smash through the glass ceiling in New York over the past year. In New York City, as many as 31 women are poised to enter the New York City Council, bringing about the legislative body’s first female majority. And while Eric Adams came out on top in the New York City Democratic mayoral primary, candidates Kathryn Garcia and Maya Wiley came in close behind in the race to become the city’s top executive.

 

The Power of Diversity: Women 100 – researched and written by City & State’s Kay Dervishi – recognizes the prominent women wielding power across New York state. Politicians, government officials, consultants, lobbyists and union leaders number among the power players featured on this year’s list. Our analysis looks into how much influence each individual holds – and how they use it to shape New York’s political landscape.

 

On Saima: "The Parkside Group is known both for its political consulting and its lobbying operation, which has represented such heavyweight clients as AT&T, the Brooklyn Nets and Microsoft Corp. A key player on the firm’s government affairs side is Saima Anjam, who came on in 2019. During her career she has also held key roles with the New York Immigration Coalition, the New York State Coalition Against Domestic Violence, Environmental Advocates NY and the New York Public Interest Research Group."

There's been a lot going on this week so you might not have seen @CityAndStateNY talk to a bunch of experts about how ...best to engage government. But it's worth a read to learn from a lot of smart people, particularly my @ParksideGroup colleague @SaimaAnj https://www.cityandstateny.com/politics/2022/08/lobbyists-navigate-more-civil-yet-nuanced-landscape-albany/376105/
