In education, recruiting, retaining, growing, and supporting exceptional people is vital to students’ success. Education is a $600 billion industry that employs 13 million people and our nation’s second largest workforce—teachers.
Meet our Pioneer, Roxanne Phen, who implemented Workday at the Oakland Unified School District to move the district’s entire human capital department from transactional to strategic. OUSD is only the third district in the nation to use the system. Learn More
Of our Pioneers working full-time in education, many support critical, sector-wide human capital initiatives:
Education organizations rely on efficient, effective operations – like facilities, transportation, food service, and more – to ensure that students, teachers, and principals are supported to make magic in the classroom.
Our Pioneers have ensured that in Boston, public school students get to school safely and on time; that in New York, principals spend less time on administrative tasks and more time on instructional leadership for the city’s teachers and 1.2 million students; that in Los Angeles, the country’s second largest school district has the infrastructure it needs to serve nearly 700,000 students; and that over 12,000 students on the East Coast have access to healthy school meals that help them learn and thrive in school.

In education’s complex environment, sound strategy matters tremendously. Our Pioneers bring deep strategic expertise to lead growth and expansion, community engagement, marketing, human capital, technology, and much more.
Our Pioneers have helped NewSchools Venture Fund identify the best opportunities for investment in early childhood education and education technology; have analyzed and made recommendations to retain more teachers in the San Francisco Unified School District, as well as crafted an early education strategy to improve and expand services while also reducing costs; and have helped Newark Public Schools implement talent management technology and develop a student engagement strategy.
