As the Associate Director of Recruitment and Selection for the Incubation team, Jihad Broussard is a program recruiter, workshop facilitator, and coach for education innovators as they scale their equitable ideas to serve students and youth across DC.
Jihad joins CityBridge most recently from Management Leadership for Tomorrow (MLT), where he was the Manager, Talent Acquisition. Prior to joining MLT, he was a Lead Special Education Teacher who often felt like the day-to-day experiences of a classroom teacher were not understood. He often wondered why more corporate, local community organizations, and elected officials were not involved in providing resources for educators and students. To bridge this gap between the classroom and the community, Jihad co-founded “The Reformist Pipeline,” a podcast that uplifts and empowers educators throughout DC and abroad.
Jihad holds a B.A. in Law and Society from American University and an M.Ed in Special Education and Teaching from Howard University.
