Coordinator, Team Support
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.

LEE is a truly unique place to work. It combines the opportunity to work alongside and develop incredible leaders as we work towards the movement and hope for educational equity with the space to develop your own professional and leadership development alongside an incredible team of truly talented individuals. We are intentional on building an inclusive and flexible work environment, as well as encourage creativity as we collectively build groundbreaking programming.

Director, Performance Management
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!
