They say that if it is your passion, it doesn’t feel like work.
I’m committed to being a champion for effective volunteer resources management practices so that it is a win, win, win – for clients, paid staff, and volunteers.
JUNE 20, 2018, VOLUNTEER RESOURCES MANAGERS WORKING WITH THE LGBTQIA+ COMMUNITY: DIVERSITY WITHIN THE COMMUNITY
I was approached to write an article about volunteer resources managers working with the LGBTQIA community for, e-Volunteerism – A Journal to Inform and Challenge Leaders of Volunteers. Once it was published in April 2018, I started thinking about a workshop based on materials included in the article – real life experiences about the LGBTQIA community and research I’d done. I ended up presenting my first self-produced workshop during Pride Month at the LGBTQ Community Center, NYC, where I first volunteered in 1987 (before my career change to volunteer resources management in 1993) and where I continued to volunteer for over ten years.
