As Chief of Staff, Jen Davis facilitates and coordinates internal management of CityBridge. For nearly a decade, Jen previously directed CityBridge’s Stewardship and Network Engagement practice, overseeing a strategy to leverage content and convenings to build an “army of stewards” who understand DC public education and support the practices that are best helping children succeed. In this role, Jen designed a portfolio of content-rich events for philanthropic, business, and civic leaders to learn about the issues and ideas most relevant to our city’s education landscape. She also supported our entrepreneurs by building political maps of DC to navigate and develop critical local relationships.
Before Jen joined CityBridge in 2008, she spent five years with the national literacy nonprofit Everybody Wins!, first managing its corporate volunteer program and development efforts in Chicago and later serving as national development and communications director. She was also previously a spokesperson for the Got Milk? campaign. Jen earned a B.A. from Washington and Lee University. Her two children inspire her commitment to creating an excellent, equitable education system.
