We are so honored and excited to be part of BoardLead again this year. This program has been integral to our success as an organization and our ability to change and save lives in Houston. Truly, without the amazing Board members BoardLead has cultivated for us, I don't know where we would be."

When you start serving on a board, you become so much more aware and smarter about the possibilities around you and how to seize them... I truly believe the more I lean into this opportunity, the more I can get out of it.

As a former immigrant herself from Ethiopia/Eritrea during high school, Sewit Bocresion has brought wonderful insights as a Program Committee co-chair to our work. Heart House is a Dallas nonprofit that provides safety, education, and opportunity to young refugee children, helping them move from chaos to calm. Sewit deeply understands how education can help and shares that in her program leadership role. In addition, she is particularly effective at doing her board homework, listening, and asking thoughtful questions as part of our board meeting dialogues.

We feel like the BoardLead process was a smashing success! We were introduced to a great match for us, who brings specialized knowledge, energy, and curiosity about our work and our program. The process also introduced us to a company with which we'd previously had no connection. We are grateful to BoardLead for this great matchmaking!

I was SO impressed by my BoardLead experience—the team offered so much support and guidance as I approached my first ever Board position, which is something I had been dreaming about for awhile. The process was both rigorous and accessible—a perfect balance. The training and guidance provided is also extremely valuable for a first-time Board member. This placement was really life & career changing for me, and I couldn't be more grateful!

Trinity Thorpe-Lubneuski has been a wonderful addition to our board. She has been a very active board member, attending multiple events and giving feedback when appropriate. The biggest contribution has been our increased partnership with Comcast since she joined Concilio, including helping our organization become a Lift Zone Center to provide free wifi connectivity to our community. We have also been able to provide over 300 laptops to our families since Trinity joined our board. Overall, it has been a great experience and we continue to enjoy her presence as a board member of Concilio.
