For this week, I invite everyone to join in for an important and informative discussion with Grace Suh, the Vice President of Education and Corporate Social Responsibility at IBM. In her position, Grace manages IBM’s global education portfolio, including the P-TECH 9-14 School Model and SkillsBuild, both of which we will learn about in our conversation today.
Prior to IBM, Grace worked at the Children’s Defense Fund, a national child advocacy organization in Washington, D.C., and has worked in city government with a focus on juvenile justice issues. Grace serves on a number of education committees and boards, including the Coalition for Career Development, Cahn Fellows Programs and Schools That Can.
Grace has a master’s degree in public policy from the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University and a bachelor’s degree from Columbia University.
