California Controller Betty Yee, chief fiscal officer for the world’s fifth largest economy, ensures the state’s monetary resources are accounted for and disbursed responsibly. As the nature of work is changing and another economic downturn is inevitable, what is in store for the programs and services Californians need? What are the impacts of the housing affordability crisis and other risks to the Golden State’s economic vibrancy? In 2014, Yee became the tenth woman elected to statewide office in California’s history. She serves on dozens of financing and regulatory authorities, as well as Governor Newsom’s Future of Work Commission. 

As the state’s chief fiscal officer, Ms. Yee chairs the Franchise Tax Board and serves as a member of the California Public Employees’ Retirement System (CalPERS) and the California State Teachers’ Retirement System (CalSTRS) Boards.  These two boards have a combined portfolio of more than $620 billion.  Ms. Yee also serves on the Ceres Board of Directors, a nonprofit organization working to mobilize many of the world’s largest investors to advance global sustainability and take stronger action on climate change.
