Gretchen Crosby Sims was "the education program manager at the Joyce Foundation in Chicago, a regional foundation with $800 million in assets that makes grants of approximately $8 million a year in the area of education. The foundation works to close the achievement gap that separates low-income and minority children from their peers by expanding their access to educational opportunities in early childhood, improving the quality of teachers they encounter in school, and exploring such innovations as small schools and charter schools. She served as domestic policy adviser for education and family issues to Senator Bill Bradley in his 2000 presidential campaign and has worked for the Council on Foreign Relations (New York), Cable News Network (Washington, D.C.), and the Kennedy School of Government at Harvard University. Ms. Sims holds a Ph.D. and M.A. in political science from Stanford University." [1]

In 2008 "The Joyce Foundation promoted Gretchen Crosby Sims to director of strategic initiatives, promoted John Luczak to succeed her as education program manager and hired Angela Rudolph to succeed him as education program officer." [2]
