#BlueStarBrief August 2019

Blue Star Strategies mourns the passing of Barbara Shailor, a long-time senior advisor to the firm.

Barbara's commitment to the rights of workers around the world was truly inspirational, exemplified by her service as the U.S. State Department's Special Representative for International Labor Affairs.

"By combating the root causes of poverty and helping countries provide a prospect for decent work we can better hope to achieve our foreign policy goals: stability, security, democracy, and prosperity for all." - Barbara Shailor
