The Broad Residency 2018-2020


I am a steadfast proponent of evidence-based policy and programs and passionate about ending disparities. Public education is a force that should be driving the raising of living standards, the increase in longevity and health, and the transformation of communities. I firmly believe that public education is the primary avenue to reducing disparities and providing for a better future.

Jennifer Perkins is the chief of staff at Prospect Schools. Prior to joining The Broad Residency, Jennifer worked at the World Future Society, a global organization focused on the future of humanity. Jennifer has always pursued avenues to reduce disparities. As a consultant at SB Friedman Development Advisors, she facilitated improved access to health, education and job opportunities by working with community development entities and on projects receiving New Markets Tax Credit financing. She was also an assistant vice president at the New York City Economic Development Corporation, working on public-private partnerships, primarily with community-based organizations. Jennifer earned a bachelor’s degree in foreign service from the Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, concentrating in foreign policy and Latin American studies, and a master’s degree in public policy from the Sanford School of Public Policy at Duke University.
