Kate Stewart, 2018 Observer
The Observership Program is a wonderful opportunity for personal development. Participation on the program exposes you to a diverse community of NFP leaders who are regularly making decisions that have a broader impact on society and the people that are often left behind. The knowledge and skills that you pick up from being an observer are skills that can’t be taught in a classroom. By observing boards in action, you will learn how to be a better leader, a better listener and have a broader array of skills through which to apply when making decisions, whether they be in the NFP or for profit sector. The formal program component including the AICD content is a bonus and its comprehensive nature, when applied in action via The Observership Program, is the perfect catalyst for a person to want to contribute and make a difference in whatever role they are pursuing.:
Kate joined the FareShare Board following her Observership year.
