Seattle Works Board of Directors

The Board of Directors comprises individual volunteers from the community who help steward the overall health of the organization. They guide our mission and strategy, oversee the health and ethics of the organization, and ensure that Seattle Works has the resources (finances, staff, brand, etc.) it needs to fulfill its mission, and prioritizes equity and inclusion in all that they do. Additionally, Seattle Works board members support our programs: they attend sessions, bring their personal community with them, provide input and feedback on topics covered, and engage in authentic relationship building.
