OUR FOUR IMPACT AREAS CALLed CIRCLES
Through Full Circle Fund, I’ve been able to meet professionals with diverse skillsets and experiences who are making an impact in education. This has helped me to develop a deeper understanding of equity and access issues in the education space and inspires me to embark on my own journey of impact as well.
