One of Han’s favorite projects is a current one: Han and some of her cohort Fellows are planning an Education Hackathon. They’ll be bringing Silicon Valley’s best and brightest tech minds together to come up with and create innovative solutions to some of education’s systemic problems, and ensure everyone has a great time while they’re at it.
Han gets into the office anywhere between 7 and 8:30 AM and typically starts her day with the Development Team, working to establish standardized donation processes and manage donor relations. Han also works closely with the Fundraising and Operations Teams to help them understand donor characteristics and donor processes, as well as with donors, who she relays information back to in order to keep them updated and willing to give money for a good cause.
“The great thing about Education Pioneers is the support system that you get. Not just from the staff—who are phenomenal—but also from the other Fellows who are going through very similar experiences.”
“Education Pioneers provides you with development, support, and the knowledge to speak intelligently about education, and the ability to truly be a leader in the system.”
