Kate Harris

Kate serves as the Executive Director of The Washington Institute for Faith, Vocation, and Culture located just outside Washington D.C. in northern Virginia. A proud native of Colorado, Kate moved to DC in 2002 as a Falls Church Fellow where she worked with Chuck Colson and Prison Fellowship on several human rights and justice policy initiatives. She then spent several years working on Capitol Hill for U.S. Senate leadership and helped to lead the vocational ministry Faith & Law. In 2007 Kate left Capitol Hill to help start The Wedgwood Circle, an angel investment network to fund art that lifts up the good, true and beautiful. In 2008 her family moved to England for her husband to pursue his graduate degree and, when not busy caring for their young children, Kate worked part-time to lead business development for a boutique project management firm. She also worked on a handful of special projects for the global consulting firm Oxford Analytica. After returning to the DC area, Kate joined The Washington Institute as a writer in 2010 and began directing its development in 2011. She recently wrote Wonder Woman: Navigating the Challenges of Motherhood, Career, and Identity(Zondervan: 2014) as part of the Barna Group Frames. Kate graduated from the University of Colorado at Boulder with a B.S. in Journalism and B.A in Political Science. She is wife to a very good man and mother to their four young children.
