We are committed to advancing human potential and promoting equality through improving education. Evidence shows students learn more in schools with diverse talent and leadership.
Yet, there is a long way to go to create a field of education that reflects the children it serves. For example, approximately 40% of public school students are Black or Latino and only 15% of teachers and 17% of principals share their ethnicity.
Since 2012, through Startup:Education, we have been supporting the Pahara Institute to develop and sustain diverse, high-potential leaders who are reimagining public education in America and most importantly working to realize these aspirations.
We are investing in a new set of emerging innovators focused on developing diverse education leaders, including Education Leaders of Color, Camelback Ventures, Latinos For Education and Surge Institute.
We are excited to help build a new generation of leaders who reflect the students and communities they serve.
