Jacobs Social Entrepreneur Fellow

Laura White

Saïd Business School

Laura’s career has focused on empowering young children and their families. Before joining the MBA program at Oxford Saïd, “Ms. Laura” taught three and four year-old students as a preschool teacher for the District of Columbia Public Schools. She also taught one to four year-olds with autism for the city of DC’s early intervention program. As a former senior intrapreneur and leader of the US Changemaker Schools Network at Ashoka, Laura is passionate about combining her social entrepreneurship experience, her expertise as a highly effective teacher, and her MBA education to make high quality early childhood education and family support available to all families.

Through the Jacobs Fellowship, Laura plans to engage with the network’s early childhood education experts and social entrepreneurs to support existing early childhood initiatives or potentially start an early childhood education social enterprise. Laura looks forward to learning from the other fellows, supporting other fellows’ pursuits, and helping to develop the Jacobs network.
