Are You "Ready to Lead"?


Have you wanted to represent your neighborhood on the association board, serve on a school committee, be part of a nonprofit board or city/county commission but just didn’t feel like you knew how things worked—and didn’t want to be embarrassed? Ready to Lead brings together a small group of people to teach the basics of how to participate in and lead meetings, what to expect, how to contribute in a meaningful way, and what the roles and responsibilities of board/committee volunteers are.

This training is specifically designed for historically under-represented people who wish to serve in the community. It is sponsored by the Community Inclusion Action Team (which is led by the Diversity Council) in order to increase both the diversity of skilled people ready to serve and the inclusiveness of organizations who deliver services to the community.

Three 3-hour sessions will be held, one each in January, February, and March. The training is absolutely free, but you must commit to attending all three sessions. The final session will include networking with boards, commissions, and organizations seeking skilled new members such as you.

Space is limited, so register now!

Students Raise Money to Fight Bullying


October is National Bullying Prevention Month, and Student Leaders Creating Change (SLCC), the Diversity Council's after school anti-bullying program for high schoolers, is raising money for the Ben Cohen Stand Up Foundation. The foundation, which supports anti-bullying efforts around the world, was one of the first funders for SLCC, and the students want to give back. You can support their efforts here.
