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.

LEE pushes me to have agency over my work. I appreciate the flexibility that allows me to learn skills and work on projects not officially defined in my role responsibilities. I am encouraged to grow and learn, and I feel like a crucial member of my team. I love the energy that I feel from every team member, even though we connect virtually.
