Staffing Peer Huddle

Tuesday, January 17, 2023 (2:00 PM - 3:30 PM) (EST)


Exclusive KNN Member Benefit 

KNN offers free Staffing Peer Huddles for member organizations’ staff and board members to strengthen their HR practices. Using KNN’s Principles & Practices for Nonprofit Excellence in Kentucky tools as the basis for discussion, the Staffing Huddle meets on the first Tuesday of every other month from 2-3:30pm ET. See below for dates.

The Staffing Huddle offers KNN members a virtual opportunity to discuss recommended staffing/HR practices with their peers and discussions are facilitated by HR & DEI Consultant, Chanta Howard Wilkinson, JD. Chanta is the founder of Chanta Wilkinson Consulting, LLC, where she provides diversity, equity, and inclusion consulting and assistance to organizations implementing strategies and best practices. Huddle discussion topics include: recruiting and retaining employees from underrepresented groups; exploring personnel and organizational policies through a DEI lens; acknowledging and disrupting inequities in the workplace; and more.

January huddle topic: Recruiting Employees from Underrepresented Groups. 

The goal of nonprofit organizations is to have a board and staff reflective of the communities they serve. However, many organizations fall short of this goal. In this timely and important 2-Part Interactive Huddle Session Series, we will kick off the year exploring strategies organizations can utilize to successful recruit diverse employees from underrepresented groups. Please be prepared to discuss tactics currently employed by and barriers your organization faces in its recruitment efforts as we collectively look at measures to recruit diverse candidates. 

At the conclusion of this session, we will review material in preparation for Part 2 “Retaining and Engaging Employees from Underrepresented Groups,” scheduled for February 7. The topics will complement one another, and you are encouraged - but not required - to attend both sessions in this special two-part series! 

Participation in the Staffing Peer Huddle is free and available exclusively for KNN members – join in the conversation! If you are a KNN member and need assistance logging in to register, email us
