The Broad Residency 2018-2020


To me, management skills are enablers of organizational goals, just as many mathematical concepts can be applied to different disciplines like physics or engineering. What organizational goals are nobler than those of education focused organizations, and what better use of these skills than to support teachers and principals in teaching students?

Angela Zhang is a strategic projects manager in the Transportation Department at Boston Public Schools, driving improvements in the district’s bus system that serves over 30,000 students. Before joining The Broad Residency, Angela was an engagement manager at McKinsey and Company, where she led work in strategy, operational improvement and organizational design for clients across a variety of industries and sectors. Angela has also worked in business development at Seres Health and Isomerase Therapeutic.
