We are excited to announce the appointment of Roseann Darabaris to the Illinois Joining Forces Board of Directors as a Civic Leader who will be assisting Board of Director members and Foundation staff in support of their daily mission.
As a civilian, Roseann has been a passionate and staunch supporter of our Military Veterans for a number of years. She actively organizes events and volunteers time to local VAs, sends Troop care packages to deployed Military overseas, and has been a volunteer for Honor Flight since April 2009. Five years ago, she became a member of Accenture’s Military Employee Resource Group (MERG). Roseann was asked to be the Chicago Office MERG Co-Lead in May 2014, Chicago Office MERG Lead in May 2015 and in December 2016 the MERG Midwest Region Lead covering seven offices. Her MERG responsibilities are all volunteer in nature, and she helps to facilitate mentoring, drive Veteran networking and collaboration and identify Veteran events that fit into Accenture’s Corporate Citizenship program structure focusing on strengthening our People, Market & Community.
She has been an active participant and fundraiser for the past three years for the Chicago Veterans Ruck March which raises funds for Veteran PTSD and suicide awareness programs.
Roseann graduated from Illinois State University in 1992 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Public Relations and a Minor in Sociology. She has over 20 years of experience as an Account Executive selling Software Applications and Technology primarily across the North America.
