INBA Chamber President Lance Kissler and INBA Outreach President Betsy White.

Betsy was introduced to INBA by attending one of our monthly luncheons and she joined  INBA in February of 2013 when her youngest child came out as transgender at the age of 5. Her middle child recently came out as genderqueer this summer. Because of her active participation at lunch, she was invited to join the INBA Outreach board in 2014 and sat on the committee to help select this year’s scholarship recipient and was elected board president in July of 2015.

Her goals as Outreach President is to build a new board of directors, increase the visibility of INBA Outreach in the community and grow the internship and scholarship fund.

Betsy has become active in the LGBTA community and is also a board member for OutSpokane and a founding member of the new Transgender group Spokane TALL– transgender, advocacy, learning, and leadership. With the help of several other dedicated members, they have been helping to highlight the needs of the transgender community in Spokane. 

I think the INBA is a great organization to help  with not only networking in the business community but also as a way to help make changes in our community to make it a better place for diversity and equality for everyone.

Betsy White graduated with honors with her Master’s Degree in Public Administration from Eastern Washington University in 2015. While attending EWU, Betsy helped Odyssey Movement with creating a database and an analysis for two years’ worth of survey’s and created a presentation that Odyssey can use to help with grants. In addition to her work as an advocate in the LGBT community, Betsy has been a judge for the Future Business Leaders of America for the last two years.

She is currently working as a seasonal employee for SNAP in the energy assistance department and hopes to find a full-time position with SNAP.
