Following your passions in the non-profit sector often seems like a daunting task especially when you're fresh out of college or seeking a dramatic career change. In most cases, the path toward a non-profit career is the biggest unknown.

ACEL will present "Energizing Your Passions: Establishing a Career in the Non-Profit World" at the Dynamics of Leadership conference on July 9 to prove that the entrance into a job you're passionate about is bigger than you think. Led by four panelists -- Nobu Hara, Elizabeth Clements, Elizabeth Greene and Tom Egan -- the talk will enable you to map out the best approaches to become a non-profit leader. The panel will be moderated by WebPT Sales Development Manager Kim Hamby, a 40 Under 40 Business and Community leader who currently serves as ACEL's Mentorship Program chair and as a board member for numerous non-profit boards.

Hara has served as the Senior Vice President and Chief Talent Officer for Goodwill of Central Arizona for 10 years. He is often recognized for his creative and innovative approaches in workplace environments, as well as his ability to build loyal, resilient teams through positive conflict communication. With over 25 years of top-level experience in the field, Hara brings an HR perspective that provides insight on what non-profit leaders are seeking from employees.

Clements is the Senior Director of Human Resources & Administration at Junior Achievement of Arizona, a leading nonprofit through which she educates students on financial literacy. She spent a decade working with a commitment to people within the workplace and continues to volunteer with various non-profits through the Society for Human Resource Management. She will use her passion for people and bringing out the best in them to help conference attendees explore the non-profit world.

Greene, the Assistant Director of Human Resources at Fennemore Craig, is a change-maker in the field of law. She has effectively built commitment and camaraderie among peers in her field to make a difference in her company's culture. As an active volunteer for ACEL and the Make-A-Wish Foundation, she will bring her insights about working in the non-profit world and erase the hesitancy you may face while thinking about a new career.

Egan entered the nonprofit industry in 1995, helping homeless population access healthcare. Today, he is the President and CEO of the Foundation for Senior Living, an organization he gifted with his passions for poverty reduction, child and animal welfare, developing age-friendly communities and human trafficking prevention. A member of various local and national boards and taskforces, Egan will utilize his rich background in international social services and non-profits to bring attendees the push they need do their passions justice, too.

Teach For America Steve Erickson Activates Millennials with Dynamics of Leadership Seminar

  • PDF

Download Your 2017 Conference Booklet NOW! Click Here

Throughout the world, millennials strongly captivate researchers, employers and business owners as they continue to expand their influence as consumers and in the workforce. Unsurprisingly, engaging with this unique generation has become a hot-button topic -- one that continues to perplex an enormity of leaders.

On July 9, ACEL will answer your questions about "How to Properly Engage and Activate the Mysterious Millennial Generation" at the Dynamics of Leadership conference in Chandler.

Presented by Steve Erickson, Teach for America's Vice President of Public Affairs & Community Engagement in Phoenix, the talk will uncover the best strategies for building millennial involvement. The drives behind the generation will be demystified, allowing attendees to identify new resources for their goals. By the end of the workshop, you will be confident in your ability to effectively tap into the millennial market on a business scale and engage in the millennial community for nonprofit goals.

Erickson is an experienced leader in this crucial topic. Currently, he effectively activates millennials in local universities and beyond to serve in Teach for America, in addition to overseeing engagement strategies for nearly 1,000 TFA alumni in Arizona. He effectively built the first Alumni Leadership Board in Phoenix, and doubled the amount of ASU and UA candidates while on the national recruitment team. 

Prior to his current position, Erickson served in the Phoenix corps himself. He is now married and has two kids with his wife, who also served in Teach For America.
