She is now being recognized as the recipient of the 2020 Nature Leadership Award for her “exceptional commitment and contributions to the nature center as a whole and her invaluable leadership at Elachee.” This national honor is bestowed once a year by the Association of Nature Center Administrators. Peter Gordon, Elachee’s education director, said he first started working at the nonprofit in 1992 when it had a handful of staff members and was “a small program with an uncertain future.” “She (Timpone) is such as hard worker and just learned those skills that really served us so well in leading Elachee into the future,” Gordon said. “She has an eye for financial detail and the ability to hire great staff, which is maybe her greatest skill. The board of directors is just incomparable. She helped grow it into a really successful and regionally significant organization.” The 41-year-old nonprofit currently has a 22-person Board of Trustees, team of volunteers, 11 full-time employees, 15 part-time staff, camps, 8-mile hiking system, 22-miles of bike trails, live animal exhibits, conservation and preservation initiatives, interactive programs and a Nature Academy for preschoolers, kindergarteners and first graders. “Elachee and Andrea’s story is one of successfully pursuing opportunities, creatively adjusting …

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) — Scott Satterfield wasn’t scheduled to speak with the media Monday, but Louisville’s head man had something to say, so the decks were cleared.Satterfield has watched events unfold in college football all weekend. He had seen initial reports that the Big Ten may already have voted to cancel its college football season this fall.And he had been dealing with players concerned with the reports and what those reports meant for them. He was frustrated and came ready to try to talk sense, as he sees it, to the powers that be, and in the public, during a video conference call Monday.He criticized the leadership of Power 5 conferences that appears to be ready to balk at a season after spending much of the spring making plans and committing to a season with an actual schedule just a week or two ago.And he’s confused at what has changed the conversation. I know because I asked him if he had any insight into what may have prompted all the cancellation talk in the past few days — beyond the Mid-American Conference making a decision to forgo football in the fall, which has zero impact on …

Long Island lawmakers are calling on PSEG-Long Island to refund utility bills, reimburse ratepayers for spoiled food, and fire its leadership following the electric company’s response to widespread power outages after Tropical Storm Isaias.
The utility has taken heat for refusing to reimburse customers for food that spoiled in refrigerators as other utilities such as Con Edison do after outages, and sending bills while home and business owners struggled to report outages following a communication breakdown. One lawmaker called for the head of PSEG-LI and its oversight agency, the Long Island Power Authority, to be fired.
“The events of the past week have made clear: PSEG-LI has failed Long Islanders,” New York State Sen. James  Gaughran (D-Northport) said. “I am disgusted by PSEG-LI and LIPA’s total failure that endangered our most vulnerable residents. Their failed leadership is unforgivable and [Daniel] Eichhorn, president of PSEG-LI, and [Thomas] Falcone, CEO of LIPA, must be terminated immediately.”
The calls come as tens of thousands of PSEG-LI’s 1.1 million customers in Nassau and Suffolk counties and the Rockaways remain without power Monday morning, a week …

What’s Your Leadership Origin Story?

what’s your leadership origin story?

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Executive Summary
How you tell the story of your own path towards becoming a leader frames your leadership style, as well as the ways in which you cultivate and support other leaders within your organization. Based on an in-depth survey of 92 leaders, the authors shed light on four distinct types of leadership narratives: they found that the stories they heard were all framed around Being, Engaging, Performing, or Accepting. They go on to discuss gender disparities in their findings, and offer suggestions as to how leaders can better understand — and expand — their leadership stories.

Phil Ashley/Getty Images

Origin stories come in many forms: tales of how we entered a profession, personal chronicles explaining how and when we became part of an organization, accounts of how we met our significant other, or even how we emerged as a new person after a crisis. Despite this natural inclination, we rarely examine what we include (and don’t include) in those accounts and how those choices shape our present reality. To better understand how leaders see themselves, we conducted in-depth interviews with 92 men and women to discover how they tell the story of their leadership origins, and then examined how their telling …

EnrichHER Launches All Rise Factory Program to Fund 100+ Women-Led Businesses

enrichher launches all rise factory program to fund 100+ women-led businesses

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

ATLANTA, Aug. 10, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — According to CNBC, in venture capital, men still get the lion’s share of funding; while according to Pitchbook, only 2% of capital goes to U.S.-based female-only founder teams. Of the 2%, women of color get only a fraction. EnrichHER is on a mission to change these statistics with their All Rise Factory Program.
During COVID-19 shutdowns and restrictions across the nation and the world, small businesses have suffered the most. You’ve heard about companies “pivoting” to urgently change their business plan and continue to bring in the revenue needed to survive this pandemic. This is EnrichHER’s pivot and this is how it works.
“When the pandemic hit, I immediately became concerned about how black-owned and women-led businesses would be impacted. We’re already underfunded and under supported, so how could we navigate this ongoing instability? I spent countless hours helping our EnrichHER members by helping them navigate the PPP and accessing applications for other external resources.  Eventually, I realized that our internal framework also needed to address this national and global economic shift. My solution is the All Rise Factory program, through which we plan to fund over 500+ companies by helping them access over $50 Million.” – Dr. …
