A Legacy of Leadership

Outside of Bayath Duron LLC, he serves as Management Faculty Member and Director of Precollege Programs for the Albers School of Business & Economics at Seattle University. Also, he serves as the CEO and Board President of the World Academy for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (WAIE). Duron has over 10 years of experience in education, entrepreneurship, and leadership development. In his time he has managed, supported, and lead programs providing opportunities for youth and communities of color in reaching their self-defined comfortable lives.

One of the most notable programs that he has worked on is supporting both Seattle Public Schools and Seattle University in developing an alternative high school on a college campus for youth that had individualized needs and interests that needed to be met that could not be met by the comprehensive school system. The alternative school supported students in regaining credits and preparing for post-secondary education. Also, a major element of the school was their end of week Adventure Based Leadership program that provided a diverse population of students the opportunity to engage in outdoor education, leadership, and much more.

Another notable program that Duron has worked on was supporting Seattle Public Schools and Seattle Academies Foundation (SAF) in developing a week-long immersion where students from their finance and hospitality & tourism programs from Seattle would visit New York to experience business, entrepreneurship, and the culture of the New York community while building skills for their programs in Seattle. Also, as part of that work, he helped students from Chief Sealth International High School in planning and managing a dinner auction event for community partners.
