Equitable Human Resources Practices Series

Join us for an interactive and enlightening three-part series to address the Human Resource implications stemming from findings in the 2017 Regional Nonprofit Compensation and Benefits Report. Plan to attend all three unique sessions which will address several challenges — employment, talent development, and retention — in our nonprofit community in Virginia. All sessions include guest speakers with relevant knowledge and experience.

Designing an Inclusive Culture: Diversity is not just about race

Friday, February 15, 2019, 9 am–12 pm

Explore how important it is to create an environment where people will want to work, perform and stay. This session focuses on creating inclusiveness, closing pay gaps, and designing fair evaluation and promotion practices. Learn how to take actionable steps to create a culture that pushes mission forward, embraces an inclusive culture and creates opportunities for career development and growth.

Guest speaker: Joyce Ivory, Human Resource Specialist, UVA

Hiring and Onboarding: Set-up for success

Friday, February 22, 2019, 9 am–12 pm

Creating equity starts in the recruitment process. Are you hiring the best talent for the future organizational culture you desire? Look at methods to assess your current hiring process and determining fair new-hire starting pay. Hear from other nonprofits who have made these changes for better results.

Guest speakers: Janette Kawachi, Chief Partnership Officer, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Charlottesville and Laura Tomaine, Human Resources Administrator, ReadyKids

Employee Benefits: More than just health insurance

Friday, March 1, 2019, 9 am–12 pm

Many nonprofits have good benefits, but what else can be offered to enhance the employee experience and remain a competitive employer? Retain your best employees by determining what could be added to provide work-life balance especially for families and ongoing professional development. See how other nonprofits have made enhancements and additions to benefits offerings, and how they addressed any cost implications.

Guest speaker: Shana Pack, SP Wellness Solutions

All sessions will include engaging learning, rich discussions, and action planning to take back to your organization.

Human Resource professionals, as well as executive-level staff and board members, are encouraged to attend. We recommend the registration of multiple staff or board members to increase the impact on your organization.
