After three days of the Nonprofit Human Resources Conference I have a mind whirling with thoughts and admiration for my peers in the nonprofit sector. We all do so much with our heart on our sleeve and our eyes open to the challenges we face. We move forward; mission-driven.
Yet is takes a conference like this one to remind me, we are not alone. The Human Resource professionals that work day in and day out on evaluations, job descriptions, recruitment strategies, team meetings, hiring and terminations as well as all other HR related requests and reports. We have access to amazing resources our colleagues, peers, mentors, advocates and friends who understand the nonprofit mission does matters to us. As an HR professional in the nonprofit sector I aspire to integrate the organization’s values and objectives into all that I do. My truest desire is to grow the nonprofit workforce providing the support employees and leaders needed to achieve and thrive.
I believe we all have gifts and talents that make us remarkable. I would like to take this moment to encourage us all to seek out those talents. There are so many opportunities to support and to grow greatness at every level. We all are able to facilitate collaboration and advocate for diversity in our workplaces, our schools and our community. Join me and make a conscious commitment to be a resource for your peers, your employees, your managers to become our leaders.
