Brittany Brady: Chief Executive Officer
Education equity advocate Brittany Brady has been selected as Chief Executive Officer of the National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE), the nation’s leading professional alliance committed to building the capacity of educators to increase student access, educational equity and workforce diversity.
Throughout her career in Dallas, TX, Brady has been a passionate advocate for equitable access to education and quality teacher training and support, and her appointment as CEO of NAPE provides the opportunity to continue her work on a national level.
Most recently, Brady was Chief Development Officer at Lumin Education, which operates early childhood learning centers serving inner-city children and their parents. Previously, as Director of Advancement at Education Opens Doors, she exceeded fundraising goals for this innovative program that provides students with critical information not traditionally taught in school about navigating high school and setting postsecondary goals.
Prior to that, Brady was Executive Director of the Brewer Foundation Future Leaders Program where she created and designed a formal curriculum to increase student achievement and preparedness for college that resulted in first-generation, low-income students maintaining a 100 percent college acceptance rate annually. She has also served as Community Liaison at W.E. Greiner Exploratory Arts Academy where she developed interventions for students with truancy issues to increase their attendance and designed new methods of parent engagement.
The National Alliance for Partnerships in Equity (NAPE) is a membership-based organization of federal and state agencies, local school districts, colleges, universities, businesses and corporations. The NAPE Education Foundation accesses support and resources to develop programs and tools to support the needs of NAPE members. For more information, visit www.napequity.org
