Stoneleigh Emerging Leader Fellowship Opportunity, 2021-2023

The Stoneleigh Emerging Leader Fellowship is a two-year, full-time, hands-on position for early career professionals. Fellows work collaboratively with a host organization and the Stoneleigh Foundation to execute a project that advances the missions of these organizations and enhances Fellows’ professional skills and leadership development. Fellows are also supported by a cohort of peer Emerging Leaders who participate in Foundation programming.

The Project: Advancing Teacher Diversity in Philadelphia Public Schools

A teacher corps that reflects its students’ racial/ethnic identity and background can help close achievement and opportunity gaps. Yet, in Pennsylvania, 15% of all students are Black, while only 4% of the state’s teachers are Black. In Philadelphia, this disparity is even more striking—49% of all students are Black, while only 24% of public-school teachers identify as such. Access to Black educators is proven to help students of color remain in school, graduate on time, and matriculate to college.

To address this critical shortage of Black educators in Philadelphia, the Fellow will work with the Center for Black Educator Development to increase equity in the recruiting, training, hiring, and retention of high-quality educators that reflect the background of the students they serve.
