STEM Network Director

Lee Lambert serves as Washington STEM’s STEM Network Director, leading the charge on the organization’s statewide effort to advance STEM education in alignment with local economic development. From supporting diverse on-the-ground partnerships to facilitating the spread of promising practices across networks, Lee is a leading advocate for high quality STEM education for every student in Washington state.

Lee brings strong strategy and hands-on skills this role requires. He began his career working for elected officials and has eight years experience working with two members of Washington’s Congressional delegation. Lee came to Washington STEM from the College Success Foundation, where he served as the director of the Washington College Access Network (WCAN). In this role, he worked to increase the capacity of school districts and youth-serving organizations to provide intentional early college awareness and preparation to low-income and underrepresented students.

Through a series of fortunate accidents and hard work, Lee was the first in his family to earn a bachelor’s degree. While he is grateful to have had the opportunity to go to college, he believes a student’s journey to their career should not be left up to serendipity or their station in life. In all endeavors, Lee brings a passion to end socioeconomic status as a predictor of educational outcomes, and a desire to ensure that equitable support is provided to all students on the journey to their careers.

Lee is a native of Tacoma, Washington where he graduated from Foss High School. He has a degree in political science from Washington State University and a master of public administration from Seattle University. He and his wife Adrienne have two children and are active members of their school’s PTSA. They enjoy running, biking, hiking, and skiing, as well as the occasional trip to a craft brewery or winery.
