Josephine Baker, ‘79 – Candidate Statement:

I am particularly interested in activities to increase Black alumni engagement and participation, particularly among more ‘seasoned’ alums and those in areas without a local chapter. My commitment to the community, and my relationships with Black students that may not have felt a strong connection to the Black community while at Stanford give me a unique network upon which to serve effectively on the SNBAA board. Volunteering in NY – a remarkably unique and transient city – has taught me time-tested strategies for keeping alums in unique geographic areas active, which I look forward to sharing.

(B) SNBAA ELECTIONS: SAMPLE VOLUNTEERISM RECORD 10-entry (maximum), only includes organization, positions held, and years of service. No descriptions.
