Exceptional People are Critical for Your Work

We get it: Education organizations like yours rely on great teams, but you have limited time and resources to find, recruit, and train your managers and leaders.

That’s where Education Pioneers comes in.

As your strategic talent partner, we will identify – and meet – your most pressing human capital needs, whether for short engagements or permanent hires.

 200+ education organizations  across the country have entrusted EP to find the leaders they need to fill critical roles so they can advance their mission.

 3,500+ Alumni later,  we're proud of the impact our Pioneers have had on the sector -- and our Partners agree.

Of Partners are satisfied or very satisfied with the EP Fellowship. Of Partners agree that EP recruits and selects high-caliber talent. Of Partners would (or did!) hire their EP Fellow following the Fellowship.

By partnering with us, you'll have access to the following benefits:

A Broad, Deep Bench of Talent

Education Pioneers attracts and prepares a diverse array of talented leaders to help you build the team you need to succeed, especially in priority experiences areas like data and analysis, strategy and planning, operations, and program and project management.

Timely, Mission-Critical Capacity

We provide the talent you need, when you need it. EP offers skilled talent for short-term or full-time roles.

A Diverse Pipeline

We believe that leaders in education should reflect the populations they serve, so we are deliberate in our recruitment and selection. Every year, more than half of EP’s Fellows identify as people of color.

Our selective Fellowship draws thousands of the most qualified applicants -- more than 7,000 last year alone. Our talent reflects diverse personal and professional backgrounds. We screen our candidates to ensure they are committed to the work of transforming education on behalf of underserved students, and our cohort-based programming offers our Fellows continued professional and leadership development.

Robust Network Connections

As a Partner, you’ll join a national network including thousands of other leaders and visionaries from innovative organizations who understand the importance of great leadership and talent. We convene our network at events across the country.
