In this episode of Charity Executive TV, David Hutchinson talks about the value of millennials and how they can excel as leaders in non-profit sector.
Today, the significant opportunities in charities and charitable organizations are in fundraising. So, if somebody has the mindset for resource development, sales, marketing and communications – the ability to tell a story and develop relationship with donors – they have an incredible opportunity to excel. This is a huge area of growth where millennials and young adults can easily excel in the non-profit sector. Another area is in wisely provided leadership roles with responsibilities that will grow their management skills and capacity. Many millennials are great leaders and we’re going to need a significant number of great leaders in the charitable space.
The charitable sector is going through a significant transition in leadership and the next ten years will be pivotal in relation to leadership talent and other related factors affecting organizational readiness.
