Mona Megahed

HRIS Specialist

I truly believe that people are the backbone of any and every business. And to make a business successful, you have to support the people who do the work. This is one of the main reasons I am passionate about HR and ultimately why I chose this career path. Joining the Urban Institute means that my work directly supports a team of people who research findings that influence policy and inform those empowered to make change in our world.
