Workshop Three: Future Sector Leaders Tell All

So, how can you attract, retain, and even replace young talent?

I think you first need to listen to young talent, for which this workshop provides an opportunity. Young people will gladly share their (short) life stories, if you just ask. There is an amazing amount of wisdom in the young kids out there, so pull up a chair. We've got three on this panel, ready to dispense their stories and ideas.

Some quotes:
"It was important that I could find a job where being 28 was not a detriment."
"Unfortunately, at most nonprofits, there seem to be lots of entry-level people, a few people who make a fat paycheck, and no one in between."
