The Chamber’s annual State of Education luncheon will feature keynote speaker Dr. Danette Howard, senior vice president and chief strategy officer at Lumina Foundation.
Lumina is the nation’s largest private foundation focused solely on increasing student access and success in postsecondary education. Howard oversees several of Lumina’s key strategies to increase Americans’ attainment of high-quality postsecondary degrees and credentials, including strategic work in both state and federal policy. She also leads the foundation’s efforts to mobilize and engage employers, metropolitan areas, higher education institutions and other key actors with a stake in postsecondary attainment.
In 2017, Lumina announced Tulsa as one of 17 communities across the country designated as a Talent Hub. Tulsa, among the other cities, earned this new designation by meeting rigorous standards for creating environments that attract, retain, and cultivate talent, particularly among today’s students.
