JustLead Washington is now recruiting for its Board of Directors. As you may know, JustLead is a statewide organization offering training, consulting, and other capacity-building support to the equity & justice community that is focused on leadership and organizational development, race equity, and collaboration between legal and community partners. JustLead’s inaugural board started as a small but mighty team of Leadership Academy alumni who were (and still are!) willing to help steward the birth and growth of JustLead, but as our now 2-year-old organization grows we are hoping to recruit a new cohort of board members who can join our team in 2019.
JustLead is seeking board members who are excited to engage in big conversations about what a strong community of equity & justice advocates and organizations look like and who are willing to champion JustLead’s work within their networks and communities. We are intentionally seeking a mix of JustLead program alumni and folks who are newer to JustLead, legal and community partners, and folks from around the state. We welcome and encourage applicants who have personally navigated the law & justice systems and who have been directly impacted by racism, poverty, and other forms of structural oppression.
Are you ready and excited to become part of our growing team? Do you know anyone else who might be? Please help us spread the word! Please see attached for a board recruitment announcement and more information; you can also find information at https://justleadwa.org/about/job-openings/. Board applications are due January 18th,, and interested applicants will have an opportunity to talk with current board members and attend a board meeting before confirming their interest. For questions or assistance in completing a board application please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
