The Power of Relationship-Building & the Relentless Pursuit of the Right Metrics: The Story of ProUnitas & PurpleSENSE — Albert Wei, ProUnitas
Albert Wei, Chief Operations Officer of ProUnitas will present the story of ProUnitas and its founders who started out as teachers in some of the lowest-performing schools in the country and decided to do something about the mismatch between availability and delivery of resources to children.
Transforming Student Support Departments to keep students in school and maximize student achievement.
ProUnitas is on a mission to ensure every student has access to the right resources at the right time in order to be successful in school and beyond. We provide technology-powered tools that transform how schools inform, connect, and empower students and their families with the village of resources available to them.
Don’t miss this engaging and powerful story of a start-up nonprofit that achieved greater impact in a major public school district than most organizations achieve in a lifetime.
Participants will learn:
about the importance of hard work to build knowledge and credibility to gain a seat at the decision-making table;
about the power and value of local, focused social impact work that sometimes may not lend itself to national scaling;
how a successful start-up nonprofit constantly re-evaluates itself, always staying mindful of its ultimate services receivers — their students;
that powerful social impact can be achieved through infrastructure improvement for existing services; and
that technology without a soul is just a product.
