For nearly half a decade, Imran Khan has been leading change and innovation as a teacher in one of the “the most dangerous” schools in the nation, Harper High School. His innovative models are now being utilized by other networks in Chicago Public Schools and are restructuring approaches to skill acquisition and academic interventions. Imran has received four consecutive Medal Awards for highest student achievement from the CPS Office of School Improvement and was a finalist for the Chicago DRIVE award.  He is the co-founder and CEO of Embarc, a multi-award winning post-secondary success program that is using experiential education to change the trajectories of lives.  Under his leadership, Embarc has grown from 25 students in one school to nearly 850 in 18 different Chicago Public High Schools.
