Duanecia Evans

Teach For America
Senior Managing Director, Public Partnerships
Washington, D.C.
Born and raised in Harlem, New York, Duanecia Evans leads a Senior Managing Director Teach For America's national Public Partnerships Team. Duanecia's portfolio of partnerships specifically focuses on strengthening opportunities within the Black community. Duanecia has ensured the recruitment and retention of Black educators, forged partnerships between Teach For America and national organizations including UNCF, Alpha Phi Alpha Fraternity, Inc and the National Women's Law Center. This work has afforded educators the opportunity to be trained and advocate for equitable school discipline practices and end the inequitable push out of girls of color in our nation's schools.
In 2018, Duanecia was honored by New York state Congresswoman Yvette Clarke for Excellence in Education and Community Service, as a result of her work as a creative strategist, diversity practitioner and community advocate.

Duanecia's work sits at the intersection of community-driven justice and corporate social responsibility. Duanecia has dedicated her career to bringing voices together who have both the mindsets and means to obliterate social inequity in this generation.
