CLO Community Leadership Summit and Nonprofit Expo: Rachel Egboro, The Storyline Collective and The Whole Story

On Saturday, April 15, 2017, the Community Leadership and Outreach Committee will be hosting the first ever Community Leadership Summit and Nonprofit Expo. The purpose of the Community Leadership Summit and Nonprofit Expo is to provide training for ladies that are interested in pursuing roles in community leadership and to create opportunities for them to practice those skills.

Rachel EgboroAmong the fabulous presenters that will be featured at the Community Leadership Summit is Rachel Egboro, whose passion for the community has inspired her to create spaces for others to find their voice through storytelling. For the past four years, Rachel worked as a Community Outreach Coordinator at First Things First. In this role, she has raised awareness about the importance of early childhood development and education. Rachel is excited to continue raising support for the next generation of Arizonans in her new role as the Strategic Partnerships and Development Manager.

Rachel is also the brains behind a new storytelling event called The Whole Story.  Rachel isn’t new to the Phoenix storytelling scene as she’s co-produced live events with The Storyline. However, The Whole Story is Rachel’s response to the events that have occurred over the past couple of years. She saw a need to create a space where every day experiences of black people in Arizona could be told.  The show debuted to a sold-out crowd and coincided with the final weekend of the groundbreaking Kehinde Wiley exhibit at the Phoenix Art Museum. Rachel hopes that The Whole Story will provide an opportunity for the community to come together and will inspire conversations for the future.

Speaking of the future, Rachel is hosting a series of workshops called Telling The Whole Story for people of all ages who are interested in telling their story on stage. Rachel is passionate about intergenerational sharing because she believes wisdom comes from both the wealth of experience of older generations and the innocent curiosity of younger generations.

Between now and April 15th, we will be posting information about the fabulous presenters that have volunteered to share their knowledge to help us be the best community leaders we can.

This event has been graciously sponsored by a number of community organizations that believe in the potential of ladies to be leaders of our community. Wells Fargo has graciously agreed to host the day’s activities at their Connections Center and the Gratitude Hour at the Wells Fargo History Museum where attendees and participants will be able to see the original Wells Fargo stagecoaches that brought the earliest financial services to settlers in the Western states. Pei Wei Asian Diner has generously agreed to provide lunch to all the event participants and presenters to ensure that everyone has a freshly made, nutritious lunch. Valley Leadership has kindly agreed to sponsor the Community Leadership Summit and Nonprofit Expo Gratitude Hour to help ensure that all our community participants are properly thanked. Lastly, the Junior League of Phoenix Foundation believed in CLO, before CLO even existed by providing the seed grant that got the Community Leadership Program started and got Summit and Expo going.
