TRACK • Leadership

Panel Discussion – Where did I come from? How the sector can gain from diverse career pathways into fundraising leadership

Thursday 29 Feb 2024 - 4:00 pm to 5:00 pm

  • General Fundraiser (all fundraisers)

Is it possible for a tradesperson, health specialist, entrepreneur, journalist, athlete, lawyer or other profession to completely change their career trajectory into fundraising leadership? If so, what skills from a previous life are most valuable to fundraising organisations? A career path into fundraising is often not linear, but what have practitioners learned from previous careers that have been most valuable? This session  will hear the unique and diverse career stories of fundraising leaders who transferred from another career – What was their catalyst for career change? What motivates them? What have they learnt? What do they bring to fundraising and how do we hire more of them?
