Our Partners

LEE is proud to partner with mission-driven organizations to empower and inspire a new generation of diverse, equity-minded civic leaders to end the injustice of inequity nationwide.

At New Memphis, we are focused on developing more and better leaders through our programs. LEE has been an incredible value add for our program participants, allowing them to continue growing their skills and their community of civic-minded leaders. But most importantly, LEE has helped our network of leaders take action. LEE offers tools for people to make change and inspires our leaders to get involved in the city in meaningful ways. Partnering with LEE has been an incredible complement to New Memphis’ local programs and has undoubtedly strengthened our work and impact.

With LEE, School Board Partners has been able to increase the amount of supports and resources available to our growing community of fellows and alumni.  Our fellows and alumni are eager to engage with LEE’s programming and find it valuable for strengthening their leadership and impact. They also benefit from the ability to tap into and learn from a larger network of diverse leaders in education.

Our partnership with LEE has been instrumental in empowering Public Allies alumni to level up their professional development with the support and resources available to them from LEE, which is leading to transformative impact in their communities. LEE’s top-tier career coaching, exclusive networking opportunities with values-aligned leaders, and specialized training and supports to run for political office are not just resources; they are game-changers. These tools don’t just enable our alumni to contribute but to LEAD, SHAPE, and INSPIRE impact.

Current Partners

As we build this network of equity-minded leaders, we support, inspire, and further equip them with the tools and resources they need to grow their civic leadership and create lasting change – through policymaking, elected leadership, advocacy, or grassroots organizing.

Just like our partners, LEE believes in the importance of uplifting the voices of those who are proximate to issues of inequity. Our work enables our partner organizations to support the lifelong leadership and impact of their alumni beyond their core programming.

Together, we are committed to changing the face of civic leadership to better reflect the diversity and lived experiences of our communities. Our programming is designed to help LEE members pursue their personal and professional passions.
