SUPPORTING ADULTS
TO BE BOLD ON
BEHALF OF STUDENTS

About Us

Our Mission

Promise54 is a new, nonprofit talent solutions provider formed by Xiomara Padamsee, Monisha Lozier, and team members from within Bellwether Education Partners’ former talent advising practice. We support organizations to build thriving environments where adults can achieve their best outcomes in service to kids. We believe organizations maximize their impact and truly thrive when their teams are diverse, their cultures are inclusive, and their practices model the equity they wish to see in the world.

Our Inspiration

Race and educational inequity have been intertwined throughout our nation’s history. On May 17, 1954, in the Brown v. Board of Education ruling, the Supreme Court observed “…it is doubtful that any child may reasonably be expected to succeed in life if he is denied the opportunity of an education. Such an opportunity, where the state has undertaken to provide it, is a right which must be made available to all on equal terms.” Promise54 enables organizations to deliver on this commitment. We envision a day when all students growing up in low-income communities are able to excel academically, and we believe this will happen when the schools, and organizations that serve them, are healthy and high performing and exemplify the equity and justice we seek in society.
