(CNN) – Nancy-Ann DeParle, among the most prominent women in President Barack Obama’s inner circle, is set to depart her White House post after his second-term inauguration.
DeParle, deputy White House chief of staff, will join the Brookings Institution later this month and also begin lecturing at Harvard Law School. News of DeParle’s departure was announced Friday by Brookings Institution’s president, Strobe Talbott.
Earlier this week, Labor Secretary Hilda Solis announced she would resign. EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson and Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also are on their way out.
The White House did not comment on DeParle’s exit.
