Partnership Mission Defined
Eastside Pathways Partners work across organizations using our diverse strengths and skills to shape systems that support every child, step by step, from cradle to career.
A task force of partners, led by facilitators Julie Benson and Sujata Agrawal, worked through a constructive process to discuss and evaluate suggestions, audience, and goals, and then draft three statements.These statements were further refined based on feedback from partner leaders, and presented at the All-Partner Meeting on October 20. More than 50% of the partners provided feedback that was overwhelmingly positive. The final mission statement for the Eastside Pathways Partnership was approved in November. You will see this new statement reflected in Partnership materials moving forward. It is the task force's hope that the statement will serve as a touchstone for new partners and help to inspire trust, commitment, and alignment.
A huge thank you goes out to everyone involved in the development of the statement: task force members
