Janet Yellen is the first woman to head the most influential central bank in the world. An American economist, she is currently the Chair of the Board of Governors of the Federal Reserve System.

Yellen previously served as Vice Chair from 2010 to 2014, as well as President and Chief Executive Officer of the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco, Chair of the White House Council of Economic Advisors, and Professor Emerita at the University of California, Berkley, Haas School of Business.

As Chair, Yellen aims to repair the American Dream:

“The extent of and continuing increase in inequality in the United States greatly concern me… I think it is appropriate to ask whether this trend is compatible with values rooted in our nation’s history, among them the high value Americans have traditionally placed on equality of opportunity.”
