YNPNdc members speaking about opportunities

Recently, the Chronicle of Philanthropy shared this video from the YNPNdc conference.  They interviewed participants about professional development opportunities and engaging young professionals.

"Members of the Washington chapter of the Young Nonprofit Professionals Network, many of whom are in their 20s and 30s, say opportunities are expanding, but they also have concerns about their futures in the nonprofit world. Low pay, long hours, and a lack of upward mobility were among the issues viewed as setbacks.

Some participants discussed the hierarchy that exists within nonprofit groups, noting that many organizations value their ideas but are not incorporating young people into leadership roles.

Others say charities need to go beyond simply recruiting young talent and make an effort to find out the career aspirations of young professionals."

Great to see the voices of young professionals being shared in this way.  Congrats to YNPNdc on a great conference and this feature.
