WHAT OUR ATTENDEES SAY
"The training I attended was instrumental in my onboarding experience (I had only been with my United Way for 9 months when I attended) and I was lacking a big picture understanding of United Way. Additionally, being exposed so early in my United Way career to all the resources in the United Way Network will serve me (and my United Way) well moving forward."
“The program was outstanding and I would recommend it to any new UW employee. It was a great example of the benefits of the UW network. I especially enjoyed having staff from various departments, leadership levels, and tenures in the same room. I thought that really elevated the discussions and learning, as many different perspectives were represented.”
“I thought this was a wonderful immersive experience for newcomers to the United Way family! I learned so much in regard to our original framework and overall mission, that I did not receive in my UW onboarding process. This was very engaging. I highly recommend for incoming employees.”
“The knowledge I gained from this program was unparalleled. I thoroughly enjoyed it and am very glad I got the opportunity. I feel much more connected to the mission and goals of this organization.”
