Work in nonprofit? How are you doing? 
To read the news, we could assume that most people are reassessing their lives and leaving their current jobs in search of something more flexible and fulfilling.
Since working in the nonprofit sector can be different from other sectors, we are launching a short survey to gain insights about how employees, across all nonprofits in central Indiana, are feeling about their jobs and their organizations.
If you are a current or recent nonprofit staff member or leader, please take a few minutes to anonymously share your thoughts in our survey. It includes several quick, multiple choice questions and a few open-ended questions to allow you to share more. You also have the option of providing your contact information if you’re open to a short interview with our editor, who will be writing an article about the survey results.
The survey will be open for a couple weeks in July. We will publish the results toward the end of the summer. Please take a few minutes to complete the survey and share the link with others in your nonprofit network.  
To learn more please contact Bryan Orander at or 317-752-7153.
“Hiring the Best” – Hiring Assessments increase fit and retention
Charitable Advisors becomes Talexes Partner
As we bring new people into our organizations or consider existing staff for new roles, there are assessment tools that can help identify where candidates or current team members may be naturally inclined or might need to make conscious adjustments to thrive. 
We are excited to be working in partnership with Talexes and will be using their hiring assessments in our own executive searches in addition to providing local nonprofits with effective, affordable tools.

We love these assessments because they have been recently validated with today’s workforce, you can take them on phones and tablets, and they can be used through the full hiring, staff development, and succession planning lifecycle. Talexes offers three hiring assessments - for executive, mid-level, and entry level hiring - plus a great 360 assessment tool.
You can learn more by joining the “Hiring the Best” webinar on July 28 at noon ET.

Attendees will have a chance to try out the TalassureMX assessment for FREE! ($175 value). TalassureMX provides objective insights into the core behavioral traits, occupational interests, and reasoning ability of upper-level professionals.
Building a Diverse and Welcoming Nonprofit Board
For years, I naively perceived that nonprofit boards weren’t more diverse because existing members didn’t reach out and invite people of color to become involved. I didn’t grasp that many nonprofit boards were not perceived as welcoming or that leaders of color might not be interested in joining a white organization. Here is a toolkit assembled by experienced practitioners that could be of value to board and staff leaders on the journey to bring more diversity, equity, and inclusion to their organizations.

We want to recognize board leaders
For most board members, board leadership roles come with a commitment and investment of time and resources to support a cause they care about. However, for the individual who steps up to serve as board president or chair, the role comes with the assumption of overall responsibility for the nonprofit and guiding the organization’s path forward.  

As we continue to share news of board leaders who have taken the helm, we encourage you to recognize and thank these individuals for tackling the role, because as a community member you recognize the value of his or her investment to help keep the sector strong.  

If you want to announce your organization’s new board leader, please send name, position and a head shot HERE.

We are open to other ways we can support and recognize board leaders. Send us your thoughts or tell us a story about a board leader who has made a difference in your organization. Share your ideas with Bryan Orander, president.
