A note from the EAP Leadership Team:

This past year, EAP underwent a rigorous and gratifying “organizational assessment,” in which we considered what type of leadership structure would best serve the organization. It was important to us that EAP’s structure not only embodied the values that we advocate for – such as play, innovation, equity, and collaboration – but also empowers its leaders to execute bold programs for the network long into the future. What emerged from this assessment is a plan for a shared leadership model, where EAP is led by two Co-Directors and supported by a volunteer Advisory Committee (and you, our powerful network!).

We are thrilled to take our first steps in implementing this model with the promotion of Katherin Canton as the first Co-Director. Her work with EAP, from when she was a Fellow in our second cohort to being the Network Coordinator for the past 2 years, has consistently revealed her skill at managing complex projects with both fiduciary and organizational savvy, and finesse in collaborating with diverse teams. Her interest in strengthening our core programs and internal practices as well as extending the tradition of thought leadership and regional advocacy left us inspired.

Our warmest “welcome” to Katherin in her new role at EAP.
