Shari Yost Gold, who advised vice president Kamala Harris during her 2020 run for the presidency, is coming on board at Invariant, the firm led by Heather Podesta.
In addition to advising the presidential campaign of Mike Bloomberg, the senatorial campaign of current DNC chair Jaime Harrison and the NYC mayoral campaign of Ray McGuire, Yost Gold has also served as a senior advisor at MikeWorldWide. She has run her own firm, Yost Gold Consulting, since 2003.
At Invariant, Yost Gold will be a senior advisor in communications and public affairs, working with corporate leaders as they respond to key DC policy decisions.
Podesta told CNBC that the hire comes as corporations have been faced with handling such controversial policy decisions as gun safety measures and the pending Supreme Court ruling on Roe v. Wade.
“These are not one-off issues and one of the things we are doing with our clients is helping them develop processes to authentically address these issues,” said Podesta.
