Manager, Strategic Planning
I love my job because I am challenged daily, and everyone at LEE is passionate about the mission of the organization. It’s rare to work somewhere where you’re supported by staff at all levels, and there’s still room for flexibility and input in your work. Being able to work from home or move to another city easily is a huge plus as well!

The best part of working at LEE is being part of an organization that is not only willing to take on the monumental challenge of educational equity, but that approaches that vision in a very inclusive and practical way. Working alongside such a diverse group of individuals all committed to achieving this goal is not only very satisfying but incredibly inspirational. LEE truly gives me an opportunity to do work worth doing.
