As part of the operationalization of our Strategic Plan, in FY18 Thread reorganized our staff team to increase specialization of roles as well as increase congruence of Thread Community experiences for students, volunteers, collaborators, and staff. Thread’s staff team is now organized into five divisions; including Inspiration (ensures that potential students, volunteers, collaborators, and staff are inspired and prepared to make a commitment to their own personal journey), Interconnection (provides the roadmap to assist all community members on their journey), Investment (invests in permanent meaningful relationships between members of the Thread Community), Involvement (creates meaningful spaces for members of the community to intermingle and engage) and All-In (ensures that our staff team and Board of Directors are aligned with the Thread vision and strategic plan).
