“Showing that you challenge yourself is important in a leader. You want to create a kind of roadmap for your own work so that it keeps you guided. But I’m not doing that by myself, I’m working with the entire team and I’m bringing in the community.” –Julie Wise
We were honored to be joined for an online leadership seminar by King County Elections Director Julie Wise. She shared her experience and wisdom about the importance of bringing your team along with you, fairness and equity in elections and all aspects of public service and civic engagement.
Julie Wise was elected as the King County Elections Director in November 2015. King County is the 13th largest county in the nation and has approximately 1.3 million registered voters. Wise has served King County voters for more than 15 years as a champion of best practices in election administration within King County and throughout Washington State.
The Freedom Center continues to turn on a dime, increasing our online classes and sessions during the shelter-in-place order. We are bringing experts from around the world with feet-on-the-ground experience in organizing, civic engagement and public service together with our youth and staff.
This is an excellent time to study the relevance and importance of transforming ourselves to make change in the world.
