Myriam Sullivan is a senior director in the Center for Apprenticeship & Work-Based Learning at JFF. She works to advance career pathways for women, Black, Latinx, and Indigenous people, and other populations who are underrepresented in high-demand sectors of the economy, such as STEM, manufacturing, and health care.

Myriam’s work focuses on transforming policies and practices across the registered apprenticeship (RA) and work-based learning ecosystems. She has served as interim vice president for the apprenticeship center and has led several key initiatives aimed at scaling apprenticeships, making apprenticeships more equitable, and growing innovative models for in- and out-of-school youth in RA. She led Credentials That Work, JFF’s emerging work in the development and application of labor market information and workforce research, and developed the methodology and labor market analysis for JFF’s involvement in New Skills at Work, a landmark JPMorgan Chase & Co. workforce readiness initiative aimed at closing the skills gap.

Before joining JFF, Myriam served as a presidential management fellow for two offices within the U.S. Department of Labor. She previously worked at the Massachusetts Executive Office for Administration and Finance, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston, and JPMorgan Chase.

She received a doctor of education degree from Northeastern University, a master’s of public administration from Long Island University, and a bachelor’s in political science from the State University of New York at Albany.
