Executive Director and President

Classification: Full Time

E3 Alliance (“E3”) is a national pioneer in collective impact, working to transform education systems so all students succeed. With its broad range of community partners, E3 is focused on systems change in education through data and collaboration. As a nonprofit organization, E3 leads the effort in Central Texas and statewide to support schools in better serving all students. Since 2006, Susan Dawson has built E3 into a trusted education partner with a stellar reputation, as the organization’s founding and only Executive Director and President. Under her leadership, E3 has become the go-to data partner and convener for school districts, elected officials, policy organizations, universities, and workforce development organizations.

E3 leverages critical data to serve as a catalyst to impact educational outcomes for all students—cradle to career. Partnering with schools, communities, and businesses, E3 Alliance brings together diverse voices to collaborate and build a strong, equitable education pipeline that delivers a trained and educated workforce, while creating long-term, systemic change.

The E3 Alliance Board of Directors is seeking an innovative, results-driven leader to serve as its next President and Executive Director. The President and Executive Director position oversees the administrative, service, and development activities of the organization and its 34 staff members. The President and Executive Director position, along with the Board of Directors, sets the strategic direction and vision of the organization aligned with its mission and core values. This new leader will collaborate with leaders in PK12 schools and higher education institutions, along with community, civic, and industry partners to effectively leverage data and research to transform policies and practices. These efforts aim to improve school culture, effective instruction, leadership, and educational equity and outcomes for students, especially those who are not well-served in the current systems.
