The Junior League of Phoenix knows that to develop great leaders, sometimes all that is needed is a safe space to learn, try, and grow.
Annette Tanori, 2018 – 2020 Executive VP explains:
“Junior League of Phoenix (JLP) has played a vital role in the development of my leadership skills over the last decade. I attribute my current service with other Phoenix Valley nonprofits to my experiences in the Junior League, which created a supportive environment for me to learn and grow. JLP gave me direct, hands-on experiences with leadership opportunities, which have been directly transferable into my work with other organizations. I am a stronger, educated, resourceful board member, non-profit founder, and fundraiser as a result of my membership in JLP.
In the last two years, I have served as the Executive Vice President (EVP) for the Junior League of Phoenix and the value of the education that I have received would have required a significant financial investment through any other organization. My role as EVP has allowed me to directly lead the day-to-day operations of a 1,000-member organization. As a result of this role, I have seen myself grow more confident in my leadership, organizational, and decision-making abilities. As my role as EVP comes to a close, I am excited to take these skills into the next phase of my life and to continue to serve the community I call home in a more effective way.”
