About Leadership for Educational Equity

Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE) is a nonprofit leadership development organization inspiring and supporting a network of civic leaders to eradicate the injustice of educational inequity.

Through one-on-one coaching, fellowships, workshops, and resources, LEE works to develop and inspire its members individually and collectively, across all disciplines – as policy makers, advocates, elected leaders and community organizers. LEE membership is free and currently open to alumni of several partner organizations including Teach For America, the Congressional Hispanic Caucus Institute (CHCI), New Leaders, Latinos for Education, Urban Teachers, and Public Allies. LEE believes that when a diverse group of leaders, grounded in a commitment to equity, are in leadership roles, they will serve as a transformative force for and with students and communities.

LEE is a diverse team of passionate and talented individuals committed to making a difference. We are a high-growth, results-oriented organization that operates in an entrepreneurial environment deeply invested in continuous improvement. LEE is honored to have been selected as a LATINA Style 50 Award recipient and a When Work Works award recipient. We are also an Employer of National Service. If you would like to become part of our team and join the fight for educational equity, or if you would simply like to learn more, please visit educationalequity.org [1].

Position Summary:

As part of the Policy and Community (PCI) team, this position will be responsible for helping senior leaders clarify and evaluate the equity-focused impact that they are having in their professional work and community organizing efforts. The Director, Education Policy Research, Writing & Analysis will support the PCI’s Policy and Strategy Support workstream, which provides LEE staff and members with a multitude of resources to inspire and inform them about issues in education policy, and support them to assume leadership positions in the classroom or as advisors to elected officials, in governmental agencies, or in advocacy organizations. The Director will conduct independent research and synthesize findings about local, state, and federal education policy structures and the way these entities interact. The synthesis will be accurate and reflect nuance in different contexts, but also accessible to members unfamiliar with policy. The deliverables and resources produced will allow senior LEE members to gain a greater understanding of educational policies, as they seek to take action in their regions.

The Director, Policy & Strategy Support will report directly to the Senior Director, Policy and Community Impact. Specific project management will be supported by Policy and Community Impact Directors. This position is a 0.20 Full-Time Equivalent (FTE) and is approximately 5-10 hours per week.
