    Why Work Here?
    We have a diverse, inclusive and collaborative work environment that encourages creativity, an entrepreneurial spirit and the professional growth of each team member.

Our Team

Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE) is comprised of talented, passionate people who are ready to lead in innovative ways that make a difference. Each of us is committed to working together to end educational inequity nationwide.

Our Culture and Values
 

Meaningful Impact
We work to meaningfully and measurably ensure that all children have the opportunity to attain an excellent education and achieve their potential. We understand there is no single set of solutions that will work in every community. We encourage our members to critically engage and develop impactful, thoughtful solutions. Ultimately, our guiding question is, “How will this create life-changing opportunities for all children in our communities?”

Member Driven
We exist to help our members have the greatest possible impact on opportunities available to children in their communities. Our programming, resources and strategies are designed to increase the engagement and effectiveness of our members working at all levels to pursue educational equity.

Leadership
Achieving educational equity requires bold solutions from informed and purposeful leaders grounded in the experience of teaching in low-income communities and the deep belief in the potential of all children. We believe that when our members reach positions of influence, they will help to change policies to ensure all children can receive an excellent education.

Collective Action
All of us have a role to play in achieving educational equity and our impact will be greater if we are organized and connected. We help our members to build power and amplify their collective voice. We also work to connect our members with partners in the broader movement for educational equity.

All Voices
We will succeed in our mission only if we actively engage all of our members and work side by side with communities to bring the full diversity of solutions and perspectives to these challenges. In particular, we actively seek the voices of the individuals who share the racial and economic backgrounds of students most impacted by pervasive inequality, because they can bring an essential perspective to education policymaking that has traditionally been under-represented.

Continuous Learning
As a young organization, we operate with an entrepreneurial spirit, learn from our experiences and continuously improve. As we work to build the leadership capacity of our members and their impact, we operate with a sense of urgency and an emphasis on action and learning.
