YOU

You have the ability to communicate and are at ease working with staff level clients and C-level executives and feel at home in a corporate setting as well as the philanthropic world. You are an intuitive listener and are always thinking about what’s possible. You have a drive to work on the issues facing us, nationally and globally. You are great at connecting with individuals and capable of stepping back and understanding the community as a whole, and/or larger network. You aren’t after the spotlight, but instead work diligently behind the scenes to make sure the community is engaged.

You thrive in ambiguity and understand that networks are essential to creating social impact and achieving business goals. You can work independently as well as in a team environment; you are creative, but understand the importance of assessment and measurement. You are highly capable of “rapid fire” problem solving.
