TBC Alumni Profile: Taamiti Bankole

After attending law school, Taamiti worked for Denver Public Schools and Uncommon Schools. He participated in The Broad Residency in 2019-2021.

“My Broad experience shaped my approach to public education by encouraging me to think even deeper about the ‘why’ behind systems – ultimately, making sure that all my work is connected to the goal of empowering students and communities. I also was fortunate enough to gain a crew of fellow changemakers in my cohort.”
