As advancement’s ambitions turn back towards growth, chief advancement officers are running up against a seemingly immovable roadblock: immense competition for a small pool of experienced talent.

This session spotlighted advancement best practices that high-performing advancement teams have used to proactively recruit, train, and retain high-performing staff. The session takes a deep dive into linking salary with outcomes, aligning work location with employee needs, hardwiring support to avoid burnout, onboarding to the industry, and surfacing hidden inequities.


Advancement leaders will have an opportunity to reflect on next steps they can take on campus and discuss top talent demands with peers.
