Ready to Lead seeks to support and engage historically under-represented people who wish to serve community boards/committee/task forces. Our goal is to increase both the diversity of skilled people ready to serve and the inclusiveness of organizations who deliver services to the community. For more information:
The eleven fall 2018 graduates will have completed the nine-hour training and will be ready to connect with community and non-profit leaders regarding opportunities to serve.
Please find below the list of the invited panel members and their topic areas. Opportunities to serve can be official board positions but also committee and task force openings as well. The topic areas were determined by the personal interests of the Ready to Lead participants.
Al Lun, diversity
Michael Wojcik, city opportunities
Nicholas Wysocki, education
Sara Gilliland, overall community vitality
Betty Hutchins, elder care
Meaghan Sherden, health
Beth Kallestad, sustainable development
For the panel, each of you will be provided 2-3 minutes to share your name, topic area, and a brief introduction of available opportunities in the interest area.
Finally, the panel discussion may include the following questions:
Why is diversification of your board/committee critical to the success of your agency/organization?
What skills/abilities are you looking for on your board(s)/committee(s)?
What do you find to be most rewarding about being a part of your board/committee?
What are the top two things you believe a new board/committee member should know prior to joining a board?
What opportunities do you have within your organizations for this group of emerging community leaders?
The schedule for the evening is as follows:
4:30 - 5 pm Dinner and Introductions
5 - 5:30 pm Panel
5:30 - 6:15 pm Speed Networking
6:15 - 6:30 pm Closing
