June Sekera, a Research Fellow at the Global Development and Environment Institute (GDAE) at Tufts University, is a public policy practitioner and researcher. Her economics training was at MIT and at Harvard’s Kennedy School of Government, from which she earned a Masters in Public Administration. Recent research has been focused on the systemic dynamics and drivers of the public economy, and on problems of outcomes measurement in non-market environments. Other published articles and papers have dealt with public goods and public non-market production. She is founder and co-leader of GDAE’s Public Economy Project, whose current initiatives involve studies of “The Public Economy – Its Nature, Scope and Measurement” and of the “Essential Economy.” The latter looks at how the public economy and the core economy represent fundamental economic systems without which the market could not operate. June has held leadership and management positions in the United States at federal, state and local levels of government. Her areas of content specialization include workforce training and development, labor exchange, public education, adult education, and economic development. She has been an advisor to national, state and local government and non-profit organizations on policy and program development, performance measurement and program evaluation.
