Is your voice being heard at the board table? Join ArtsFund for an evening focused on expanding racial, ethnic, and cultural diversity in civic and cultural board leadership.  Professionals of color interested in arts board service—this event is for you. Community leaders will share personal experiences in a candid discussion of paths to leadership, overcoming barriers to participation, and promoting a board culture of inclusiveness.

The panel discussion will be followed by the opportunity to talk with arts and cultural organizations seeking to increase their board representation by people of color to better reflect the communities they serve. Whether you have lived here your whole life or are new to the region and looking to get involved, this is a great way to make an introduction. Light refreshments will be served.

Featuring panelists: Sara Jones, Disruptive Innovation and Ventures Strategy, Boeing HorizonX Sarah Pierre-Louis, Marketing Career Coach/Team Development, Tableau Fred Rivera, Executive Vice President & General Counsel at Seattle Mariners, Hannah Won; With moderator: Florangela Davila, Managing Editor, Crosscut; Remarks: Michaela Ayers, Founder, Nourish
