many feathers team
Many Feathers is run by a Board of Directors as a guide for the organizations' mission and goals, with separate committees within. The management team works horizontally together to achieve project outcomes and goals. The organization consists of part-time/contract workers and volunteers and is working to grow into an organization with full-time employees, part-time staff, and volunteers. Many Feathers is a co-op, meaning our members fund the company and therefore have voting rights.
