Deputy Director, Office of Minority Economic Impact

Annie Whatley is the Deputy Director of the Office of Minority Economic Impact at the Department of Energy in Washington, DC.  In this role, she serves as the senior advisor on minority education and community outreach activities. 

Prior to joining the Department of Energy, she was employed at the Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics as an Economist for numerous consumer and industry statistical and analytical programs.    

Annie likes to think of herself as a volunteer fund developer and strong supporter of minority education, and has applied those skills and passion throughout her professional career and community service activities.  She believes that giving is the greatest joy and that service to others is an obligation - not a choice. 

She is a native of Alabama and a graduate of Alabama A&M University where she received a B.S degree in Economics.  She is married to Stephen Whatley, and they have one child, Christina Alexis, a 2011 graduate of Spelman College.
