Where We Work

  • We work across time zones.

We work with people across the country in offices, at home or somewhere in between. We are connected by relationships, technology and our shared impact.

LEE's approximate 170 staff members work out of both regional offices and home offices in 26 states to drive our organizational growth and impact. Our national office is located in Washington, D.C., and several other regional office locations are hubs where multiple employees work out of the same office. Forty-five percent of our staff typically work from a home office, 30% from a regional office, and about 25% split their time equally between a regional and home office. 

Since we don’t see every person we work with each day in the same physical office, we take pride in connecting through technology. Our staff are strong verbal and written communicators who are comfortable with a myriad of communication methods including phone, email, virtual meetings and chat. We find ways to have fun in this environment and focus on regularly coming together in person to further build our relationships.

Where a staff member works depends on the requirements of the role and how the team is structuring their work. If a job description lists a specific location for a position, the staff member will be required to work from the designated location. To see the location requirements for each position, click into the job description and review the locations listed under “Position Location”.

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.

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!
