Board Profile
The Gay City: Seattle’s LGBTQ Center Board seeks leaders who are deeply committed to the organization’s mission and values. In addition, the Board seeks members with a broad range of skills and backgrounds, including but not limited to experience in healthcare, the arts, business, accounting, finance, fundraising, social services, legal counsel, human resources and the food service industry. The Gay City Board is deeply committed to reflecting the multicultural and intersectional identities that make up Seattle’s LGBTQ community. We hold this to be just as important as professional skills as the Board prioritizes membership for those most underrepresented in our community to center and uplift those voices in our work.
