2018 Annual Report: Leadership

2018 Annual Report: Leadership

By  Sara O’Brien and Michael Jordan

 

2018 Annual Report: Leadership, celebrates the role of past and present leaders whose strengths and perspectives bring value to our work every day. 

Willamette Partnership’s 2018 Annual Report focuses on the leadership our staff, board, partners, and colleagues represent in the world. We’re taking this opportunity to celebrate the role our past leaders have played in making us who we are today, and the emerging leaders we are committed to supporting and nurturing for tomorrow. The results we achieved this year are built on the different strengths, perspectives, aspirations, and values we each bring to our work.

Successful leaders don’t start out asking, “What do I want to do?” They ask, “What needs to be done?” Then they ask, “Of those things that would make a difference, which are right for me?” – Peter Drucker

In the same spirit, we hope you’ll consider making a donation in support of Willamette Partnership’s work. Your contribution will help us make 2019 another year of leadership and growth.

With gratitude,

Sara O’Brien, Interim Executive Director and Michael Jordan, Board President
