Being Purposeful about Diversity.
We kick off our SOS series with guest Scott Fogarty. Scott, an attorney, transitioned into the the head of the non-profit, Friends of Trees. He grew his non-profit from 5 team members to a diverse team of over 42 employees, while growing the non-profit's topline every year for 15 consecutive years. In doing so, Scott created a diverse team that served every community within the Portland Metro region.

Our focus will be on Scott's transition from the legal world to his new environment, creating and cultivating diversity in his organization, and the benefits he saw of diversity.
