Jenny Kane

Program Lead for Career and Technical Education

Bloomberg Philanthropies

Jenny is responsible for managing Bloomberg Philanthropies’ Career and Technical Education (CTE) portfolio. Since 2016, Bloomberg Philanthropies has invested $101M in CTE programs, reaching over 107,000 students and providing training in jobs in advanced manufacturing, healthcare, and IT. The initiative supports programs within high schools that provide training, credentials, certifications, and work-based learning (apprenticeships and internships) to help young people obtain employment in these high-growth industries. In January, Bloomberg Philanthropies announced a $250 million initiative to create new high schools around the nation that will graduate students directly into high-demand healthcare jobs with family-sustaining wages. This first-of-its kind initiative pairs public education systems and hospitals in 10 communities.
