STSI Board of Directors
Sister to Sister International, Inc. has been blessed to be led by a diverse group of board members over the past twenty-years. Although, the board of directors has been infused with new recruits and ideas, with a compliment of eighteen (18) in total, it moves forward with five (5) inaugural members who provide stability and a historical perspective. Together with the vision and leadership of Cheryl Brannan, founder and CEO and strategic planning and process skills of Board Chairperson, Laverne Johnson, the leadership team has made great strides. We have been able to stay-the-course despite the financial challenges and hardships that we, like many nonprofits in the US have experienced, over the past seven years. We see the light at the “end of the tunnel” and believe our future is bright, as we make progress toward our goals.
The diverse demographics represented on our board have been a major asset and include, inter-generational, grass roots, health, academia, spiritual, international and political, expertise and experiences, among others.
Sister to Sister International, Inc. instituted a re-organization in 2010 as part of our five year strategic plan, that includes a re-structure of the board, enabling more layers of governance, as well as the creation and recruitment of an International Advisory Board of six (6) accomplished, experienced leaders in the business and professional world, related to STSI’s mission and scope of services.
Implementing our strategic plan has also included a focused effort on recruiting more millennials – younger women to provide leadership and insight into what’s important to them. Many of our millennials have grownup in STSI. We consider this group critical to our future and have modified our programming, usage of social media and other technologies to have them become more engaged in our organization and enhance our overall effectiveness.
STSI is 20 years strong and on the Move!
