He previously served as CEO of Reading Partners, the largest children’s literacy nonprofit in the United States, which he grew from a small startup to a national leader in its field. Michael also serves as a Social Entrepreneur in Residence at Stanford University and is a founding Advisory Council member of the My Brother’s Keeper Alliance, President Barack Obama’s signature initiative focused on supporting boys and young men of color.
