We may not be seeing autumn leaves yet, but the signs of fall are plentiful. Kids are back in school. The breezes are getting just a bit cooler. And the Surge Institute is celebrating the beginning of another year of growth, connection and development with a powerful collective of emerging education leaders of color!
But this fall is a special one.
For the first time, I get to shout about not one, not two, but three cohorts of emerging leaders beginning their collective Surge journey! That's right... in one year we've gone from a Chicago-based nonprofit with a transformative fellowship program to a national movement, spanning three U.S. cities, with more in the pipeline.
Now, the praise and love I get to share is nationwide, whether it's for Chicago Alumna Christine Diaz, who has stepped into an influential new role as Chief Education Officer of
or for Oakland Alumna
Osayuware (Tina) Enagbare, who is now the Vice President, Talent & Equity for the
Peer Health Exchange
The leaves may not have changed just yet, but we are seeing beautiful colors in high places all the same.
Thank you for being a part of this growing movement.
