About the Submissions
These Chief Executive Officers know what it’s like to be the “other” in a room. While neither Robinson, Ramanathan nor Odemwingie had "CEO" on their career wish lists when they started teaching, their lived experiences prepared them to lead these equity-and justice-focused organizations and the power of their perspectives is a driving force in their success. In this panel, these three dynamic leaders will share the stories, stumbles, and successes that lead them to the CEO seat.
- Lacey Robinson, Chief Executive Officer and President, UnboundEd
- Arun Ramanathan, Chief Executive Officer, Pivot Learning
- Michelle Odemwingie, Chief Executive Officer, Achievement Network
UnboundEd and Pivot Learning promote culturally responsive instruction in math by working with educators to design and implement solutions like adopting and implementing high-quality instructional materials. This session will elevate the school district voice, focusing on what is needed to transform coherent instructional systems with Pivot and UnboundEd’s Math Identity Leadership Accelerator® (MILA™), where leaders learn how to apply culturally responsive math practices.
