Caroline King will now be representing Washington STEM on today's Town Hall on STEMresults! Caroline serves as Washington STEM’s Chief Operating Officer, leading the organization’s strategy to build a robust and diverse movement in support of improving STEM education, as well as managing its finances and operations.
Caroline brings more than 10 years of experience working nationally and in Washington State to improve public schools, accelerate student performance, and close educational achievement gaps. Most recently, she served as executive director of Partnership for Learning, the nonprofit education arm of the CEO-led Washington Roundtable. In that role, Caroline led the design and incubation of Washington STEM and co-led a new statewide advocacy coalition that aligned the business and broader community interests around a common education reform agenda.
Caroline holds a Master of Education in administration, planning and social policy from the Harvard Graduate School of Education and a bachelor’s in anthropology from the University of Notre Dame. Outside of work, Caroline enjoys spending time with her husband Eric and two young sons, Charlie and Russell. She loves hiking, cooking, going to concerts, and wine tasting her way around her new home in the Pacific Northwest, as she's a native of the other Washington on the East Coast.
Caroline is very excited to be joining us on today's call, saying, “In order to drive impact at scale, we need to have a bold appetite for risk tempered by a relentless focus on measuring and acting on results. This is what we do at Washington STEM. I won’t pretend it’s easy; we are definitely building the plane while we are flying it. That’s why I’m so excited to participate in Tuesday’s STEMConnector Town Hall. I look forward to sharing our organization’s approach and questions, and to learning from colleagues around the country.”
