An IM Conversation with Lisa Tepper Bates

March 18, 2021


A Path Forward

In our first episode of 2021, Phillip Petree, IM’s Human Services Practice lead, sits down with Lisa Tepper Bates, President & CEO of United Way of Connecticut, to discuss the organization’s nationally recognized 2-1-1 service, the role United Way of Connecticut has played in the state’s vaccine roll out, Lisa’s call for more partnership and collaboration amongst nonprofits, and her vision for the organization as it continues to respond to the evolving needs of Connecticut residents.

"From the youngest child to the oldest American, we have to be able to show that this is a system that serves us all. That is imperative to the way forward for our country. I believe that organizations like United Way of Connecticut and the United Way Network can play an important role in leading the way and helping our neighbors, our supporters, and our clients.”
