Working at LEE

  • People-driven. Results-driven. You-driven.

Our staff is a kaleidoscope. We recognize and value our differences while working toward our common goals.

LEE’s full-time, permanent staff is around 150 people; add in other types of staff members and we are about 200 people strong. Our size requires us to be collaborative, while our young tenure requires innovation. Our staff come from many different professional backgrounds including the private sector, the nonprofit sector, community organizing, policy, advocacy, elections and campaign work, the classroom, and more. They have one unifying passion: to solve educational inequity. Our staff members possess a few distinct qualities, such as:

  • Being comfortable with both ambiguity and navigating process-oriented structures
  • Operating independently and autonomously
  • Thriving in ambiguity and change
  • Sharing a generosity of spirit and assuming the best in others
  • Focusing on continuous learning, unlearning, and both giving and receiving feedback
  • Prioritizing diversity, equity and inclusion in our work
  • Demonstrating strong verbal and written communication and technological proficiency

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.
