Megan Watts, President and Volunteer Manager for Diversity ACT.
Megan has taken on the role of Volunteer Manager for Diversity ACT and has gone well beyond the position description. She has a particular passion for developing our next generations of volunteer leaders.
Megan actively mentors’ young people in the youth group, Queer Youth Together. She works closely with young people at all levels of the group, providing opportunities and support for upcoming leaders to overcome barriers to their leadership, both personal and social. Young people who had never previously considered themselves leaders are now confidently taking up leadership positions within the group.
Through the Audrey Fagan Board Traineeship Program, Megan recently introduced an emerging volunteer leader to the realities of not-for-profit management committees, to enhance her future skills in the volunteer space, and provided significant mentoring.
This focus on enabling the next generation of volunteer leaders, and her immense efforts to enhance Diversity ACT’s ability to attract, support and maintain volunteers, has been done in addition to her responsibilities as President of Diversity ACT and her involvement in several of our subcommittees.
Megan is a true inspiration to all the members of Diversity ACT, especially those of us on the Management Committee who get to see her passion, energy and enthusiasm firsthand.
