Take your brand to new levels!
Finding talent to lead nonprofit organizations has always been challenging. During the pandemic many nonprofits saw key personnel leave for higher paying corporate jobs. Others left as part of the “great resignation” or to take care of children or other family members. But on the flip side, some nonprofits are finding top talent who have left the corporate world in search of more meaningful, purpose driven work. On our May Live@5 we’ll talk with nonprofit leaders on how they’re handling their recruiting. Jay Berger, partner at Morris & Berger, talks with several nonprofit leaders including: Vanessa Bechtel, President & CEO of the Ventura County Community Foundation Regina Birdsell, President and CEO, Center for Nonprofit Management Christine Essel, President and CEO, Southern California Grantmakers Dr. Va Lecia Adams Kellum, President & CEO, St. Joseph Center, one of LA County’s largest homeless services providers.
