Build leadership skills and organize in their communities
"I'm a kindergarten teacher and also serve as a Policy Advisor for Commissioner Tami Sawyer, a fellow LEE member recently elected to the Shelby County Board of Commissioners here in Memphis.
In just a short few weeks, the recommendations from my policy paper spanned the approval of a new committee that will tackle Memphis' historic issues of water suppression and lack of water confidence."
Join a diverse, vibrant network of equity-minded leaders
I am a first-generation college graduate with a low-income background. My LEE coaches have helped me develop the leadership potential they've seen in me, and LEE trainings and programs have connected me with a network of leaders that look like me! It helps so much to see that we are a very diverse network of leaders committed to creating an equitable education system for the generations after us."
Pursue high-impact careers in policy & advocacy
"I was paired with an amazing mentor who lived in my region. During our one-on-one conversations, my mentor helped me navigate the crucial first few months of my new job. She was able to share best practices on how to stay organized, increase productivity, contribute new ideas, and demonstrate value."
Run for (and win!) positions in elected office
LEE pointed out the things that already happened in my life and showed me that I'm just as qualified as those who fit the traditional mold. In order for voters to choose me, LEE game me the ability to share my story.
From networking events, to workshops and trainings, to job opportunities, to 1:1 coaching and mentorship, LEE provides all the resources, tools, and support you need to sharpen your leadership skills and increase your impact.
