Jamar Williams
Jamar’s story is a product of the sacrifices of his Black father, born at the onset of the Civil Rights movement, and his mother, who immigrated to the U.S. from South Korea. As a first-generation college student and queer person of color, he grew up with a profound desire to understand the diversity of human experience, which led him to major in gender studies at Yale. Upon graduating in 2017, Jamar joined Deloitte’s public sector consulting practice, working on projects including promoting effective governance and democracy in Tunisia and helping Cambodian organizations better support trafficking survivors. He also served as a public-private partnership funds manager for leading U.S. initiatives focused on defending the human rights of vulnerable communities around the world. As a Point Scholar and Zuckerman Fellow, Jamar is excited to design human-centered, public-private innovations in education that improve the lives of BIPOC and LGBTQI+ youth across the U.S.
