Board Leader Spotlight
Carl Gaines, BoardLeader at Callen-Lorde

Read our interview about the power of connecting with an organization that has personal meaning to the BoardLeader.

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.

Katarzyna BednarowiczBoardLeader, PowerPlay

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!
