I am so grateful that I have had the opportunity to live in different parts of the country because it has one: demonstrated clearly what good people there across all of the regions of this country and two: because I get to learn from different perspectives.

We are so excited to welcome Dr. Harriet Harral the Executive Director of Leadership Fort Worth (LFW) to Pro Bono Perspectives!

Harriet has acquired expertise in organizational effectiveness and leadership development through her experience working in not only the non-profit sector but also the public and corporate sectors. Talk about a cross-sector leader! Under Harriet’s leadership, LFW’s programs develop promising and diverse people for leadership roles, enabling the community to plan for the future. Common Impact and LFW having developed a strong partnership over the years, having worked together on 5 (you heard that right!) skills-based volunteer opportunities addressing technology needs at LFW.
