One of my most interesting and rewarding adventures has been serving on the board of the Northwest Girls Coalition (NWGC). The NWGC is an all volunteer operation that strives to bring the girl-serving community together to make the world better for all girls. It’s a pretty tall order, but an admirable goal.
This summer, the NWGC is working hard to take the pulse of the girl-serving community. We’re trying to understand our community, what they want and need, and how the NWGC can deliver on those wants and needs. We’ve had some great internal conversations, but we’ve realized that they are entirely too internal. It’s time to get out and talk to people.
If you’re reading this, odds are you are a member of the girl-serving community, whether you know it not. You work at a non-profit or school, or you donate to girls’ causes, or you’re just interested. However loose your connection may be, your voice is a vital part of this discussion.
But discussion can get boring and tedious, so we’d like to invite you to a party! The members of the NWGC Leadership Committee are throwing two mixers to introduce ourselves, get to know our community members, and get the skinny on 3 critical questions:
- What do you want?
- What do you need?
- What can the NWGC do for you?
Even if you don’t have concrete answers, join us. The more ideas and voices that make their way into this conversation the better!
North End Member Mixer: July 15, 5:30-7:30 Elliot Bay Brewing Company
Stay tuned for details about another mixer in August!
