Hiring the Right Talent

Your team is your greatest asset

Hiring into critical roles is notoriously hard. This is especially true for leaders of social ventures, who work with tight budgets, limited resources, and urgent timelines. When you do get hiring right, you accelerate your organization’s growth and impact. In this four week virtual learning series you will:

  • Define a compelling employer identity
  • Collaborate with your team to define the right role requirements
  • Learn practical tips for sourcing great candidates
  • Take home tools and templates to run an effective and unbiased selection process
  • Explore ideas to set up your new hires for success
  • Gain access to a network of leaders across the globe, sectors, and functional areas

Who Should Attend

Senior leaders who are actively thinking about how to hire into their next open role.

We strongly encourage two or more leaders from a venture to participate together. Leaders who participate with a colleague benefit from accountability and thought partnership that make it easier to share learnings across your organization.

Please let us know if your full leadership team would like to participate together. We will provide additional support to a limited number of full leadership teams to ensure a cohesive and positive experience.


This program will be offered in English, with live interpretation into French.
