Going Global

InnoPower is working to develop a stronger pipeline of awareness and access to Africa’s talent and solutions, especially in Nigeria and West Africa regions. In many ways, we should stop thinking about how Africa can be more like us. Rather, we should think about how we can be more like Africa.

As the United States’ demographics begin to change, it is important to include diverse voices and people in all economic development strategies that will lead to more inclusive growth.

Education

For more than a generation, we have focused on improving the education of poor and minority students. Real gains have been made, but many gaps still exist. To increase the achievement levels of minority and low-income students, we need to focus on what really matters: high standards and visionary school leaders. Our education system is ripe for disruption and innovation.
