This award recognizes the Iridescent team member who has gone above and beyond in their work over the past month, and demonstrated amazing teamwork and dedication.

February’s Awesome Award is presented to Karla Readshaw, our Business Development Manager.

Karla joined Iridescent almost two years ago, and since then has been crafting grant proposals, helping develop new partnerships and manage existing partnerships, and supporting our donor communities. Over the past few months Karla has gone above and beyond in fundraising initiatives and with our annual giving campaign.

Karla constantly improves her fundraising initiatives by asking for feedback on the best ways to position the org and then incorporating those in her decks. I have seen her become more confident, collaborative and enthusiastic over her wins with the team!
