Program Manager, Economic Education
Rema Oxandaboure manages employee education and engagement through the Fed Ambassador Program at the Federal Reserve Bank of San Francisco (SF Fed). In this role, she supports staff in developing their knowledge and understanding of the roles and responsibilities of the Fed, empowering them to connect more deeply to the SF Fed’s mission of public service.
She rejoined the SF Fed in 2018 after a three year stint at the Reserve Bank of Australia (RBA) in Sydney, where she supported a national communications campaign to introduce the first new Australian banknotes in 25 years. In 2016, Rema led the establishment of a new Public Access & Education department within the RBA to improve the public’s economic literacy and understanding of Australia’s central bank. Prior to her experience in Sydney, Rema spent seven years at the SF Fed, first as Regional Program Manager for Southern California and Arizona where she trained teachers in best practices for economics instruction, supported students and teachers across the western U.S. via an online learning management system, and coordinated regional conferences for 500+ students. Later in her tenure she took on a position in public engagement and social media, spearheading marketing and communications for SF Fed education products and resources. In 2013, she served on the Federal Reserve international communications team that rolled out the redesigned $100 U.S. banknote.
Rema has also worked for the University of Southern California’s Center for Active Learning in International Studies (CALIS), where she taught about international issues in the Los Angeles Unified School District, and trained undergraduate volunteers in the use of active learning strategies.
Rema has a B.A. in International Relations from the University of Southern California and an M.S. in Education from Drexel University.
