On Our Minds

Working with so many organizations across multiple issue areas gives us a unique view into what’s happening in the social sector. This is where we share our insights and ruminations.
Empowering Teachers and Cultivating Talent
On-Ramps was thrilled to be a part of Schools That Can NYC’s panel on empowering teachers and cultivating talent. Sonja Weaver-Madsen joined principals and talent professionals from across the city at the Stevenson School to discuss the importance of assessing for mission fit in the hiring process and developing structures to foster staff empowerment and development. Schools That Can connects leaders to share innovative practices and build solutions so every urban school can thrive and students are college and career ready. It was great to see this collaboration in action!
