“This course had a tremendous impact on my confidence as a person and an advocate. My voice and experiences were validated, making it easier for me to finetune my approach to this transition from the classroom to a career in policy/advocacy. I’m forever grateful to [the coaches] for pouring into my preparation. This course set the foundation I needed to enter spaces where significant changes are taking place.”
As the Director, Policy, Advocacy, and Organizing Program Supports & Innovations at Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE), Mollie Stephens has coached hundreds of LEE members into and up in their policy, advocacy, and organizing careers, and leads a team of career coaches in supporting thousands of members seeking to have an impact on equity. Prior to joining LEE, she worked for the Children’s Defense Fund-CA, Chrysalis, TreePeople, and the ACLU of Maryland, and received her dual MSW/MPP from UCLA, and her BA from Cornell University. She also runs her own coaching practice through Matter Coaching, and teaches “Careers In Public Leadership” at UCLA’s Luskin School of Public Affairs. Her work is inspired by her mother’s 38-year-long career as a special education teacher, and her experiences in the intersecting systems and movements of prison abolition and youth justice, homelessness, and environmental activism. She lives in Durham, NC with her husband, daughter, and cat, and enjoys reading, gardening, and walking by the Eno river in her free time.
