Staff

The Commit Partnership is supported by a dedicated backbone staff of over 50 professionals, each a strong believer in the need to lift all voices within our community to reach our goals.

We believe that talent is distributed equally but opportunity is not, and our team is dedicated to ending that inequity by supporting each of our over 200 partners to collectively create significant economic mobility for every student in North Texas through equitable access to a quality education.

More than 40% of our team are former teachers, campus principals, school district and higher education leaders. We also include professionals with strong backgrounds in analytics, communications and advocacy. Each is hired one by one, seeking alignment with our core values and commitment to the transformational power of education.
