Helping the Administration look like America

Emgage has prioritized engagement with the Presidential Personnel Office in the Executive Branch by incubating a first-of-its-kind community collaboration effort to ensure that Muslim Americans have the opportunity to apply to various federal government appointments.


  • Over 70 Muslim American appointments to the Biden Administration
  • Over 40 Muslim American civil society organizations involved in intensive process of soliciting, reviewing, and recommending Muslim Americans to the Presidential Personnel Office for appointment
  • Monthly meetings held with the White House Presidential Personnel Office
  • In comparison: Previous four presidential Administrations nominated a total of 10 Muslim Americans for such roles

“Emgage continues to work hard to ensure that Muslim voices always have a seat at the table.”

– Wa’el Alzayat, Emgage CEO
