Event Description

Title
Nonprofit Leaders Panel: Promoting Wellness, Preventing Burnout, and Fostering a Positive Work Culture

Facilitator
Sarah Spangler, Nonprofit Education Specialist, NAO

Panelists

Nonprofit leaders are constantly having to juggle an untold number of competing priorities. However, as workplace norms shift yet again, we find ourselves in an environment where the culture of our organization is a top priority to the volunteers, employees, and board members we hope to attract and retain.  

What is our responsibility, as leaders, to cultivate a positive work culture? What does the ideal work culture even look like? How do we get there with the tools, time, and talents we actually have at our disposal? 

Join us for this interactive panel discussion with local nonprofit leaders as they share lessons they’ve learned about cultivating a work culture that keeps people engaged, productive, fulfilled, and well. 

For accommodation requests, please contact us at [email protected]. Advanced notice of at least 10 days is appreciated.

About the Panelists

Hannah Miller, Development Director, Jackson Street Youth Services

Hannah has had the honor of working for Jackson Street Youth Services in various roles since 2012. She took an “accidental sabbatical” during 2017, when she backpack traveled and volunteered with her spouse in Central America. Upon returning to the area, she rejoined the Jackson Street team and now leads a small but mighty Development Team charged with maintaining and building local support which sustains the programs that serve youth experiencing or at-risk of homelessness in our region. Hannah recently returned to Jackson Street after family leave when she welcomed baby Clara to her family, and is currently working part-time. Outside of work, she volunteers with our local NAACP Branch and serves on several boards. She lives in Philomath and enjoys eating good food with friends and taking family hikes, led by "Clara's big brother" — a mini-Aussie named Traveler.

Jessica McDonald, CFRE; Executive Director, Greenbelt Land Trust

Jessica joined Greenbelt Land Trust in 2009 and became Executive Director of the organization in 2020. With deep Oregon roots and a passion for conservation and community, Jessica leads the organization’s strategic vision, financial resiliency planning and operations. She believes that a thriving organization is dependent on thriving people, and is continually learning new ways to nurture a healthy and inspired workforce. She loves muddy trails, jazz, family shenanigans, rescue dogs, and Oregon rain. But, more than anything … she cares about leaving a legacy of clean running rivers, wild outdoors, and colorful Valley prairies for generations to come.

Susan Ibarra, Community Health Worker and Program Manager, Casa Latinos Unidos

Born in Corvallis, Oregon, Susan is a first-generation student and has a Bachelor in Management and Business Information Systems. Susan’s passion to help her community began when she started volunteering with The Boys and Girls Club of Corvallis when she was in high school. She later became active with Oregon 4-H Outreach Leadership Institute where she was able to reconnect with her Mexican roots. Since then, she has had the drive to support, help gain self-assurance and tools to the Latinx community. In her spare time, Susan enjoys sitting at a big table surrounded by her family and food.
