GIVING BACK: Emily Stanford, a United Way representative, visited the MGH Dec. 13 to share with MGH staff the benefits of becoming a nonprofit board member.The inaugural event, “Demystifying the Process of Becoming a Nonprofit Board Member,” was hosted by the Association of Multicultural Members of Partners (AMMP) and MGH Human Resources. Stanford discussed how to prepare for board service, the responsibilities of serving on a board, and shared how becoming a board member is one way to not only give back to the community but also to build leadership skills. “The goal of the event was to expose employees to professional development benefits of being part of a board as well as promote volunteerism,” says Dianne Austin, director of Diversity, Inclusion & Engagement at the MGH.
