The Broad Center

The Broad Center is a nonprofit organization that recruits, trains and supports talented leaders from across America to transform urban public school systems. Our programs— The Broad Academy and The Broad Residency in Urban Education—prepare these professionals to put their skills and know-how to work and make student learning the primary driver of every central office dollar and decision. In public school districts, charter management organizations and state departments of education, more than 800 members of The Broad Center’s network are working with educators, parents and community leaders to help schools soar. Regardless of the setting, Broad Center alumni are aligned around a common vision: creating the kinds of environments that enable teachers to do great work and students of all backgrounds to learn and thrive.

The Alumni & Network Impact (“ANI”) team is dedicated to supporting this vision by increasing the impact of alumni individually and collectively. Specifically, ANI focuses on creating impactful learning experiences, and providing career support and development. Through a portfolio approach (e.g., best-in-class coaching, study-trips, content rich convenings) they deliver opportunities for alumni to collaborate, share best practices, continue learning, and remain inspired.

 Our culture and team set us apart; our people are dedicated to driving impact and
making a difference every day, and our climate is collaborative and vibrant. Diversity,
equity and inclusion are vital to this environment. Our diverse skills, experiences,
backgrounds and differing viewpoints lead to stronger ideas and lasting results, and our
commitment to the values of equity and inclusion show up in our programs, our
partnerships and for our team members.
