Career Moves For Fundraising Professionals
presented by Lauren Futch and Melissa Neeley

Whether you are looking to transition into the field, looking to harness more management experience, or looking to make your next upward move, this session is for you. Changing jobs frequently can make you look uncommitted, but moving to a new organization can also expand your opportunities. Learn how to encourage self-reflection when you or your team member’s current career goals are not being met. Discover strategies to take your career exactly where you want it to go and empower your team to unlock their full potential.

 

Adapted from their ICON session, attendees will walk away knowing why and when to consider a career move, the steps to take, and general career advice. Additionally, the session will feature time for Q&A, where attendees can ask specific questions tailored to their career journey. Attendees will also walk away with a tangible Personal Inventory tool, which allows them to assess where they are in their careers currently and where they hope to be.
