Director, partner strategy
With more than a decade with The Broad Center, Rachael Shrout brings a wealth of experience to her role as director of organizational impact and strategy. Previously, Rachael led engagement strategies for The Broad Center’s alumni network. She currently explores how the Center can support partner school systems in new ways beyond supporting individual network members.
Rachael’s mother, a high school English teacher, inspired her to work in public education, leading her to choose The Broad Center where she works with school systems across the country.
At The Broad Center, Rachael has done everything from producing recruitment videos for The Broad Superintendents Academy to creating an online job board to leading a research and analysis project with school districts.
She has also worked as a grassroots campaign organizer and field recruiter in Boston.
The diehard St. Louis Cardinals fan earned a bachelor’s degree in psychology from Occidental College. She is also a 2018-2019 Coro Lead LA Fellow.

What is your superpower?
My superpower is watching people act silly when they think no one is watching.
