Carla Gay - Director of Innovation & Partnerships

Carla: My absolute "why" is to disrupt systems of inequity while bringing together people to figure out better ways to solve the problems created by instutionalize education systems of oppression. I love to think outside of the box and when others say 'we can't', I like to ask 'why not?' To me innovation is finding creative solutions to challenging problems and then shining a light on the innovation and possibly taking it to a larger platform where others can benefit from the innovation. I know we can't do this alone and it requires multiple voices and perspectives. This is where partners come in, especially those who work with our most marginalized students. To keep this passion alive in me, I know I have to practice self-care. My wife and two children, along with our large extension of family and friends, help me stay passionate and grounded. I also love to read, travel, and do almost anything that involves spending time outdoors and away from technology.
