Leadership | Facing History & Ourselves


There are over 170 full time Facing History employees committed to creating a better informed and braver society. We are dedicated to fighting bigotry and hate. We are full of hope for a better tomorrow.

Facing History was founded in 1976 by educators who believed that true intellectual rigor must emphasize and teach caring for others. This approach transformed the classrooms in which it was adopted–creating equitable spaces with energized students. Today we have a network of over 400,000 educators who bring our curricula to classrooms worldwide.

Facing History & Ourselves exists due to the work of over 170 full time employees, in addition to dedicated board members and volunteers. We are committed to creating a better informed and braver society.
