Engineering World Health’s President & CEO, Tojan B. Rahhal, Ph.D., LL.M, has been named one of “10 to Watch,” nonprofit leaders by United Way of the Greater Triangle. The “10 to Watch” are a group of leaders selected for their proven impact within their communities and unique potential to shape the future of the Greater Triangle area of North Carolina.
The “10 to Watch” program was launched in 2018 to address racial, gender, and resource disparities in local nonprofit leadership by empowering local communities, amplifying the voices of under-represented and under-resourced nonprofit leaders, and preparing the broader community for these leaders’ continued success.
The initiative invests more than a half million dollars over two years — $25K invested in each leader and organization per year — in ten high-impact organizations in the Greater Triangle led by Black, Latinx, and/or Woman leaders. In addition, “10 to Watch” cohort members participate in rigorous leadership development opportunities, including Leadership Triangle’s “Transforming Leaders” program beginning in September and “Transforming Teams” program in spring 2022.
Funding from United Way of the Greater Triangle will support EWH’s Kits for the Classroom program, which provides free, hands-on STEM learning activities to students and teachers in Title I schools.
“I am humbled to have been chosen to be part of this outstanding group of nonprofit leaders and am excited to work with the UWGT team and the rest of the 2021 cohort to maximize EWH’s impact in the Greater Triangle region,” said Dr. Rahhal about her nomination.
