THE EMERGING LEADERS SOCIETY IS A NETWORK OF PHILANTHROPIC YOUNG PROFESSIONALS SUPPORTING SPOKANE COUNTY UNITED WAY'S VISION THROUGH NETWORKING, VOLUNTEERING, AND PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT.
Spokane County United Way's goal is to connect dynamic, young professionals driven to create lasting change through philanthropy, volunteerism and community leadership in the Spokane community.
Through signature events, such as the Spokane Philanthropy Awards, as well as continued support of Spokane County United Way initiatives, such as the Day of Action and Spokane Gives, the Emerging Leaders Society (ELS) is changing the face of volunteerism and community engagement in Spokane County by providing individual donors the opportunity to collectively come together to create a more educated, prosperous and healthy community.
From the Chair of the Emerging Leaders Society
I am excited for another incredible year with the Emerging Leaders Society and I hope you are as excited to learn more. Thank you for your interest and willingness to learn more. We have had a lot of growth over the past year and lots of plans for continued engagement and impact.
Through my position with Providence Health Care, I was introduced to United Way and the great work they are doing to address issues in our community around health, education and financial stability. United Way has been a wonderful partner with us to address child abuse in our community and find ways for parent to have safe, affordable options for help with their children. This is only one example of the great work they are doing.
Through the Emerging Leaders Society we are able to gain a better understanding of how our community is working together. We are able to meet prominent leaders in our community and build relationships with others who will be the future leaders all while putting the work to volunteer alongside each other.
I look forward to working with you to make an impact on the Spokane County community.
2017-2018 ELS Board Chair
