Challenge Day Reflections: Environment LT'19

Challenge Day Reflections: Environment LT'19

To keep you connected to LT and current issues and topics discussed in the curriculum, LT shares highlights and resources from the recent Challenge Day. We hope you enjoy these monthly updates!

The Environment Challenge Day is a difficult day to plan. The issues seem so big (e.g. climate change), and the results of efforts are often not seen for many, many years. We’ve learned that focusing on place can be a great strategy for talking about big issues in a way that localizes them. This year, we focused on the Duwamish River, and held the day at a Boeing Site on the river.

I now look differently at spaces where I personally have influence and think about who is missing, why, and how we can remove barriers. Change is slow, but leading with a lens of equity and access allows you to convene the right people and communities from the get-go to have impact.

Check out the rest of the story to see how Leadership Tomorrow helped John develop the knowledge and tools to more effectively address equity and access, and how LT helped him find his current board position.

Alumni Spotlight: Priya Frank, LT'15

Alumni Spotlight: Priya Frank, LT'15

LT gave me confidence to take more risks, leave an institution I'd been with for 16 years, and enter a career I was passionate about and driven towards. I began to see myself differently, saw the difference I could make, and honestly, envision myself as a leader, something I had feared acknowledging up until that point.

Check out the rest of the story to see how Leadership Tomorrow helped Priya forge long-lasting relationships across sectors and how she uses the healthy community framework in her work at the Seattle Art Museum.
