Biography

Shivam is the former Director of Special Initiatives at the US Department of Education’s Office of Innovation & Improvement. In this role, she led the development and implementation of the Investing in Innovation (i3) Fund, which was part of the historic federal direct investment in education created by the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act.

She also helped lead the Promise Neighborhoods initiative which will support nonprofits in creating comprehensive neighborhood programs that provide a range of necessary supports for children from “cradle to college” so that they may succeed in school and beyond.

Prior to joining the Obama administration, Shivam spent over five years on the Education team at the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. As a Deputy Director in the US Program, she focused on managing the Foundation’s education investments and grantmaking activities in the northeastern United States with the goal of helping every child graduate from high school ready for college, work and citizenship. Her efforts leading the 0 million New York City schools investment portfolio – where graduation rates in foundation funded schools have more than doubled in five years to more than 70 percent in schools that serve largely low income and minority students – have become a national example that success is possible. Shivam also led the education team’s work in knowledge management and internal efforts to better align the foundation’s investments in high school education with its newly launched efforts to expand access to post-secondary education credentials for low-income, minority young adults.

Prior to joining the foundation, Shivam was an Associate Partner at NewSchools Venture Fund where she led efforts to establish the east coast presence for the fund. In this role, she led diligence and investment efforts in a variety of entrepreneurial education ventures that aim to help low income minority students achieve their potential. With NewSchools, Shivam also worked directly with Chancellor Joel Klein to shape and implement the comprehensive Children First reform effort in New York City public schools.

Shivam previously worked in the corporate sector as a management consultant in the New York office of McKinsey & Company. In that role, she led client engagements on strategy, management and operational problem-solving with fortune 500 companies in the financial services, retail, and media sectors. She also worked at the investment bank Bear Stearns, and for the for-profit school management company, Edison Schools.

Shivam has had a long-standing commitment to public service, and has worked at the White House office of Women’s Initiatives, with the nonprofit real estate developer The Community Builders, and with Philadelphia Mayor Ed Rendell’s policy office. In 1995, she co-founded and served as treasurer for Project IMPACT for South Asian Americans — a national, nonprofit organization dedicated to increasing the civic awareness and community leadership of South Asian Americans. In 2003 she became a founding board member and treasurer for the EL Haynes Public Charter School in Washington DC – one of only two charter schools in Washington DC to receive the highest rating in its annual review. She also served on the board of New Leaders for New Schools.

Shivam received a bachelor’s degree in Economics and Government from Georgetown University, studied at the London School of Economics, and earned her MBA from Harvard Business School, where she was co-president of the Social Enterprise Club.
