Champion Spotlight - Brittany Packnett

It's always a delight to celebrate members of our community who tirelessly elevate the work, particularly when that member is one of the brightest voices of the next generation of educators. Leading Educators is excited to see Brittany Packnett recognized as one of LinkedIn’s Next Wave - Top Professionals 35 and Under.

Chief Executive Officer Jonas S. Chartock, who shared a stage with Ms. Packnett at our 2016 Leading Educators Institute, had this to say:

For way too long, the views and leadership of people of color have been overwhelmingly marginalized in conferences, panels, and other prominent education reform spaces. Brittany Packnett is unafraid to step into these forums, deftly tackling the complex intersections of race and systemic racism that impact not only communities of color, but the institutions at work within them. Her insight and generosity of spirit is nothing less than transformative. Her leadership will no doubt continue to push our thinking as we work to bring educational equity and justice for students forward.”
