Julie Roginsky

Political Consultant & Co-founder, Lift Our Voices

JULIE ROGINSKY has long been an outspoken champion of women’s rights and issues. A nationally recognized political consultant, Roginsky began her career working at a prominent organization dedicated to electing more women to political office. Throughout her career, she has focused her efforts on mentoring and empowering women to become engaged in the political process.

Since filing her lawsuit for sexual harassment and retaliation against the Fox News Channel, she has dedicated herself to ending the silencing mechanisms that prevent survivors of workplace toxicity from coming forward about their experiences. In Congress, she championed the bipartisan Speak Out Act, which eradicates predispute non-disclosure agreements for sexual assault and harassment. At the state level, she has advocated for laws that prevent workers from disclosing toxic workplace experiences.

Roginsky is the host of Retaliation: the Podcast, which highlights the stories of women who spoke truth to power at great personal cost. Previously, she was a contributor at CNBC and the Fox News Channel, where she was a frequent co-host of “Outnumbered” and “The Five.” In 2017, she became one of the first women to file a sexual harassment and retaliation lawsuit against the Fox News Channel and its chairman.

She serves as an advisor to major corporations, start-ups, non-profits, labor unions, and dozens of elected officials, including governors, senators, members of the House of Representatives, and state legislators.

Roginsky received both her B.A. and M.A. with honors from Boston University, where her graduate work focused on studying the dissolution of the Soviet Union and its transition from a planned to a market economy. Her passion for empowering women began in college, when she spent time working at the Labour Party in London, focusing on policies affecting women in the United Kingdom.

Roginsky previously served as a decade-long board member of the Women’s Campaign School at Yale University.
