Alexis Margolin, Expeditionary Learning's Digital Communications Manager, this month will participate in a unique leadership program designed for professionals in the education reform movement. REALITY Pro provides a week-long journey in June across Israel to help build participants’ understanding of their own unique leadership, reflect on the role of their identity in their work, recharge their conviction about justice and opportunity, and consider how they will contribute to the movement to address educational inequity in the US – and beyond.

"This is such an incredible opportunity, and I can't even begin to imagine what I'll take away from the experience. I'm truly looking forward to the chance to connect with and learn from other education professionals while we all explore Israel together," Alexis said, noting that a total of 40 professionals are participating in the June program.

Alexis joined EL in 2014 and manages the organization’s presence in the digital space, including its website and social media. She has a Bachelor of Arts in American Studies from Tufts University and a Masters of Public Administration from the Robert F. Wagner School of Public Service at New York University.

Launched in 2013 in partnership with the Charles and Lynn Schusterman Family Foundation, Samberg Family Foundation and the Crown Family, REALITY Pro is designed for professionals working in the education reform movement, including charter school networks, public schools, educational non-profits, and policy and research firms. It is part of the suite of REALITY Israel experiences, a series of tailored leadership development journeys for young adults with a demonstrated commitment to creating values-based social impact. Now in its sixth year, the REALITY Network comprises over 450 individuals from a variety of organizations from around the world.
