Bellwether Education (d/b/a Promise54)
We partner with people and organizations to solve their toughest talent-related challenges. We believe organizations will best maximize their impact and truly thrive when their teams are diverse, their cultures are inclusive, and their practices model the equity they wish to see in the world.
We help adults to thrive so that they can do their best work for students.
Race and educational inequity have been intertwined throughout our nation’s history. On May 17, 1954, in the Brown v. Board of Education ruling, the Supreme Court observed “…it is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportunity of an education. Such an opportunity, where the state has undertaken to provide it, is a right which must be made available to all on equal terms.” However, institutionalized oppression, micro-aggressions, discrimination, inequity, and violence still obstruct the path to self-determination and a life trajectory full of choices for young people from historically marginalized identities. Promise54 was formed by Xiomara Padamsee, Monisha Lozier, and team members from within Bellwether Education Partners’ former Talent Advising practice to enable organizations to deliver on this commitment.
