It’是一份礼物,以支持她所说的“pure research,”坚定不移,不受当今政治的束缚。

“在高层与政府关系密切,您可以’帮忙,但要感谢’s a RAND,” she said. “我希望美国国会更频繁地致电RAND,并说:‘We’正在考虑就某某事制定一些立法,以解决美国人民的问题。你有什么想法?”

Korologos于1987年至1989年担任里根总统任职期间的劳工部长。她致力于改善妇女和少数民族在劳动力队伍中的代表性,并争取税收抵免以帮助在职家庭负担儿童保育。她通过预测在21世纪初期会有大量工作而成为头条新闻,但工人可能没有合适的技能或受过教育的竞争者。相同的想法已成为RAND研究的重点。

Korologos previously had served as under secretary of the Department of the Interior. 她 went on to chair the President’s Commission on Aviation Security and Terrorism, and to lead the nonprofit Federal City Council in Washington, D.C. 她 also has served on the boards of several Fortune 500 companies, including Microsoft, Kellogg Company, and the parent corporation of American Airlines.

她’目前是阿斯彭研究所(Aspen Institute)的名誉主席,该组织汇聚了思想家和领导人,共同面对世界’s most pressing problems. 她’还是一位狂热的艺术收藏家,并在科罗拉多州阿斯彭市郊拥有Ann Korologos画廊。

她’s been a part of RAND for more than 20 years, as a leader and as a donor. 她 has served on the Board of Trustees since 1996, with a short break in 2010, and chaired it for five of those years. “到人们知道的地方去的想法’再次谈论给我留下了非常好的印象,特别是在经历了华盛顿的旁观者世界之后,” she said. “I’当我离开RAND的董事会会议时,我总是比进来时更聪明。”

例如,几年前,兰德(RAND)发表了一份关于军方如何更有效地移动设备的报告。当时,Korologos担任美国火神材料公司董事会成员’最大的沙子和砾石生产商。她意识到,报告中的想法同样适用于移动大量碎石。

她’s shared RAND research on rebuilding Puerto Rico with friends working on the island. 她 drew on RAND research on the Middle East when she became chair of the Middle East Investment Initiative. And she sent a RAND report on the efficacy of chiropractic treatments to her son-in-law, a chiropractor in Virginia.

“兰德的研究是如此重要,” she said. “It’s not something that’只是要进入某人的左下角抽屉’的桌子。它进入了社会中如此重要的许多领域。”

她 established the Ann Korologos Endowed Scholarship for students at Pardee RAND Graduate School in 2012. Her most recent gift includes $500,000 to support the school as it reimagines public policy education to better meet the needs of the 21st century.

最近的一笔200万美元的遗产赠款建立了Ann Korologos影响力奖捐赠基金。兰德将从捐赠基金中拨出资金,以帮助研究人员进行特别重要且及时的研究,扩大其影响力,并确保将其纳入需要的人的手中。

“我希望它能支持其他人没有想到的东西,” Korologos said, “某种改变生活的东西—为我国改变生活,为政策领域改变生活。”

“我向其他组织致敬,但您认为在50年甚至10年内会出现的珍贵珍贵品很少,仍然会产生影响,仍然可以解决某些问题,” she added. “That’s what’关于RAND的特别之处。”
