Empowering the empowered – An AES Board Empowerment Training
On Saturday, February 22nd, the AES Board of Directors met for a team building experience like no other. Since the culmination of our new board members, late last year, we have been looking forward to the opportunity to provide the team with an immersive experience into what it’s like to be a part of the AES process. The board spent the day with AES staff, volunteers, guests of board members, and several young folks from the Sacramento community to experience the training process we use in our initiatives, past and present.
Starting the day off right, the team got to know one another through activities that helped to break the ice and strengthen bonds. As the day progressed so did the activities. From starting off with fun and simple exercises like Rock, Paper, Scissors, to more heartfelt and multi-layered activities like discussing race and discrimination, the team walked away with a special understanding of what it is they’re advocating for when they step into the role of AES Board Member.
