Meet Our SEED20: Reading Partners Charlotte

Sharon Harrington, Executive Director of Reading Partners Charlotte, talks about her SEED20 experience. Since she only has three minutes to tell her story, we’ve given her three questions to share her reflections! 

A SEED20 Highlight: I value the opportunity to engage with other nonprofit leaders who are creating an equitable and vibrant Charlotte community. Everyone cares deeply about social change. I am always recharged after every SEED20 session.

An Unexpected Benefit of SEED20: Our participation in SEED20 has been an instant conversation starter with key stakeholders in the nonprofit community. The program is widely recognized for its rigor and innovation.  

How Has SEED20 Shifted Your Mindset: Our literacy work at Reading Partners is very head and heart-driven. While we continue to emphasize our results and impact with compelling data and statistics, I have started talking more about narratives/personal stories that show how the ability to read transforms lives and changes outcomes for children.
