A study in January 2012 Chronicle of Philanthropy found 82% of nonprofit employees would seek new employment if the economy were better.  Where does dissatisfaction come from, and how can nonprofit leaders and employees improve engagement and retention?

December 5, 2008 posted by admin Michelle wakes up in the morning, takes a long satisfied stretch, and reaches for her blackberry resting on the nightstand. (Barack has already gotten the girls breakfast and taken them to school.) She’s got a lot of exciting issues to tackle today in her role as Partner-to-the-President: more family-friendly work policy, the reform and revitalization of public education, and the expansion of benefits and support for veterans and their families. Her calendar is chockfull of meetings with thought leaders and feminist politicians, including Secretary of State Hillary Clinton who she has come to consider a close friend and colleague and a group of community organizers—Adrienne Marie Brown, Majora Carter, Maria Teresa Petersen, Jehmu Greene etc.—that she is mentoring and bringing into the White House for personal meetings with the President and his team.

Posted December 5, 2008 by Kyla Bender-Baird In this year’s historic election, young voters played a decisive role in determining our new President.  According to exit polls, 68% of voters between the ages of 18 and 29 voted for Obama compared to 45% of voters 65 and up.  In California, it has been speculated that if only younger voters cast their ballots, Proposition 8—the initiative which stripped same-sex couples of their right to marry—would never have passed.  And yet, this is a generation often accused of political apathy.  What galvanized young voters this year to push past cynicism and turn out on voting day?
