"Becoming a member of the Partnership was one of the best professional decisions I’ve made as a CEO. Even though I’m leading a nonprofit, the ability to cross-pollinate with organizations in various industries is extremely helpful. Interacting and benefiting from the thought leadership in the business community has shown me that they are really tackling the same issues we are facing."
