Achievement First strives to recruit a talented and diverse team of educators. Teachers and school leaders who share racial and/or socioeconomic backgrounds with our students are poised to be especially effective role models, and they bring an important perspective to school teams that enhances sensitivity and cultural competence. Achievement First also strives to create an inclusive working environment in order to attract talented people from all backgrounds—regardless of race, religion, ethnicity, sexual orientation, age and sex. We believe our students are best served by a team that represents the global community for which our students are being prepared.
