Staffing Peer Huddle

Tuesday, February 7, 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.

February huddle topic: Retaining and Engaging Employees from Underrepresented Groups. 

Recruiting diverse staff is important - retaining and engaging your diverse staff is equally as important. An organization’s recruitment success is measured by its employees' retention rates. As we dive into Part 2 of this Interactive Huddle Session Series, we will discuss the steps nonprofit organizations can take to create inclusive workplace environments where diverse employees feel welcomed, a true sense of belonging, and a connection to the organization’s mission & purpose.

This session will build on issues discussed in an earlier huddle - “Recruiting Employees from Underrepresented Groups,” scheduled for January 17. 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
