General Manager, Alternative Education
Shanaz firmly believes that education is the most powerful vehicle of economic mobility after experiencing firsthand the transformative power of education. The first in her entire family to attend college, Shanaz earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Sociology with Honors from Yale. After graduating, Shanaz became a Teach For America corps member and taught 5th and 7th grade math at a charter school in Ward 8 of Washington, DC. From 2015 to 2018, Shanaz served as the Regional Director for General Assembly in Washington, DC, empowering thousands of students to pursue the work they love through practical skills-based education. As General Manager, Alternative Education, Shanaz works with non-traditional education institutions to develop and oversee ISA programs that help increase enrollment, equalize access to education, and align incentives between schools and students. Throughout all of these experiences, a focus has been building and growing effective and passionate teams.
