YWCA Greater Pittsburgh
November 8, 2007

This organization excels in developing women leaders in the Pittsburgh area. The staff are very friendly. The organization tends to have a slow internal process. It took many weeks to talk to someone within the organization and then have that person communicate to someone else to determine if the action could work.

Coro Center for Civic Leadership
October 16, 2007

The Coro Fellows Program in Public Affairs makes you grow individually as well as professionally. The group of 16 is the most diverse group, racially, socioeconomically and culturally that I have worked with. Through the fellowship students are given opportunities to develop skills to run a board meeting more effectively, use outside of the box thinking for solutions, look at situations through different lens, and see the world through the eyes of the 15 other Fellows. During the Fellows program the Coro Staff goes out of their way to allow you to do anything you want. Each Fellow is given a tremendous amount of access to leaders and organizations within the Pittsburgh community.
