Transitioning to an institutional board for a growing organization and recommending board operating procedures.
Sharsheret supports women and families at risk or living with breast or ovarian cancer. Sharsheret’s staff and volunteers provide counseling and peer support at every stage of cancer, community education, and genetic counseling guidance to women and men who have or suspect they may have a BRCA gene mutation. These gene mutations significantly increase risk for breast, ovarian, pancreatic, melanoma, prostate and male breast cancers. Sharsheret has cancer programs addressing parenting, treatment, and survivorship. Sharsheret is a Jewish organization that helps all women and men of all backgrounds.

- Recommend procedures for board functioning. This might include committee structure and responsibilities.
- Kick-off meeting will be in the February 18 – February 28 period, depending on schedules.
- Time commitment approximately 10-15 hours per month for 3-4 months.
