ABOUT JEFF EDMONDSON
Jeff Edmondson is the executive director of Strive, a partnership of postsecondary, K-12, business, philanthropic, non-profit, and civic organizations in Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky, which is aimed at increasing educational aspirations, achievement, and attainment of students throughout the region. The lessons learned from the development of this partnership are currently being applied in four cities across the country—through a collaborative relationship with Living Cities and the Coalition of Urban Serving Universities—to help ensure resources in these regions are efficiently and effectively supporting the success of every child.
He most recently served as the foundation officer for KnowledgeWorks Foundation. In this role, Edmondson was responsible for assisting the president & CEO by leading and providing support for priority initiatives, communicating on the vision and strategies of the foundation locally and nationally, and managing the relationship with the board of directors.
Prior to KnowledeWorks, Edmondson served as a program assistant at the 21st Century School Fund, where he conducted research, published papers and wrote legislation on local and national policy issues related to school facilities. Edmondson also worked as the peaceable schools coordinator at Woodrow Wilson Senior High School, the largest public secondary school in Washington, D.C. In this role, he was an advocate for teachers and students in the school; built partnerships between the school, organizations and businesses in the community to improve student outcomes; and trained students and staff in mediation and other alternative conflict resolution techniques.
Edmondson has a bachelor's of science in biology from the University of Richmond and a master's in public policy from Johns Hopkins University. In addition, he served as a volunteer and supervisor for four years in Peace Corps Gabon, Central Africa.
It is movement that cannot be stopped. Rhythm that does not slow. It is your own will operating at its greatest force. On October 7, 2010 TEDxCincy uncovered PASSION, the energy behind life's most fearless pursuits.
In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized. (Subject to certain rules and regulations.)
