On Monday Seattle Works headed over to Boeing for a session of the corporate Bridge. 23 members of the LDE team (Boeing’s Leadership, Development, and Excellence team) came to learn more about board service. We covered board responsibilities, fundraising and how to make an ‘ask’, cross-cultural communication, strategies to cope with misunderstanding, and few in a few case studies along the way. The afternoon was complete with a panel featuring guests from 5 different local non-profits that Seattle Works partners with who are looking for new board members. It was a successful day, and great to see some potential connections already being made at the end of the day.
Thanks Boeing for letting us come and present – and thank you for this awesome certificate!
