Kristin Baddour

Project Manager

Kristin Baddour joined ESG in 2024 as a Project Manager and supports initiatives aimed at ensuring that K-12 and postsecondary students complete their education equipped with the knowledge, skills, and networks needed to be successful in the labor market.

Prior to joining ESG, Kristin was the Deputy Director of National Programs at The Hunt Institute, where she supported the Hunt-Kean Leadership Fellows and governors develop equity-based education agendas. Prior to this position, Kristin served as a Policy Analyst on the Workforce Development and Economic Policy team at National Governors Association and as an Associate on the Career Readiness team at the Council of Chief State School Officers.

Kristin has a B.A. in Political science from The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

Why are you in this work?

I’ve always been interested in how schools are structured and how they offer opportunities for students, especially after volunteering in schools that looked vastly different from those where I grew up in rural North Carolina. This experience reinforced an interest in ensuring that all students, regardless of their background or zip code, have equitable access to a high-quality education.

Why ESG?

ESG is a mission-driven organization that is truly focused on improving the lives of students. I was also drawn to how smart, kind, and solutions oriented the team is.
