Chike Aguh: On American Identity, Questioning, and Fostering the Work of the Future
Every now and then you stumble into a conversation that holds your attention in such a way that you look up and don't realize how much time has passed. That's what happened the entire time we sat down to chat with Chike Aguh. A Harvard Fellow, Wharton Alumni, and Presidential Leadership Scholar, Chike history has seen him navigating the halls of Harvard and the roads of Nigeria. Passionate about fostering opportunities to create and discover the future of work, Chike's career has allowed him to develop campaigns for presidential candidates, fight for technological equity for disappropriated communities, and most recently, serve as the Head of Economic Mobility Pathways at the Education Design Lab. There he leads the Community College Growth Engine Fund, an innovative, tri-sector and $2.5M dollar effort turning community colleges into bridges to careers in high growth fields for every American learner and worker, starting with nearly 4,000 in 6 communities. Endlessly self-inquisitive, Chike strives daily to "interrogate his own performance" to push himself to work alongside agencies, organizations, and individuals to envision a present of work that includes everyone, regardless of where they find themselves.
