Tomás joined Enseña Chile in July 2011 as head of the organization’s alumni team. In this capacity, Tomás worked to instill a sense of vision and empowerment in the eCh alumni. His aim was to foster an alumni -led movement and to connect these change makers to others in the community who are working toward the same mission. Tomás assumed in 2013 the role of Chief Program Officer for the organisation. His focus is to build strong, authentic connections among the eCh participants and alumni, to enable them to develop a sense of conviction and perspective on their work and to equip them to have an impact on children and society. Tomás is a psychologist by training, and holds a major in organizational psychology and a MSc in Public Policy from University College London, UK. He is also an avid athlete and runner.
After about a brief discussion of recent network learnings and innovations in training and support, we’ll grapple and problem-solve together on three key frontiers: (1) How do we develop and support fellows to be oriented toward academic and non-academic student outcomes?; (2) How do we cultivate collective learning and action during the two-year fellowship?; and (3) How can we support fellows to realize, act on, and evolve our local visions for student success?
We will spend our morning assembly learning about some of the breakthroughs that network partners have pioneered this year, per our annual tradition.
