Volunteer on Our Team

Impact 100 Seattle is a 100% volunteer-run organization. We are fortunate to have a group of amazing women to lead the efforts of our organization. We encourage every member to get involved in one or more of these committees and take on leadership roles in their area of interest and expertise. Each woman contributes a unique perspective, a set of diverse skills, as well as curiosity and openness as she blazes the path for transformational change in our community.
