What is Janet Yellen doing after concluding her historic four-year term as the first woman to chair the Federal Reserve? No, she’s not heading to Disney World—Yellen is joining the Brookings Institution as a Distinguished Fellow in Residence with the Economic Studies program.
 
According to the Washington, D.C.-based think tank, Yellen will start her new endeavor today and will be affiliated with its Hutchins Center on Fiscal and Monetary Policy. Among her colleagues at the Hutchins Center is Ben Bernanke, her predecessor at the Federal Reserve.
 
“I’m delighted to be joining the Brookings Institution,” said Yellen in a statement. “I look forward to continuing to study the economy, especially issues related to the labor market, and contributing to public policy debates on a range of economic issues.”
