The experience of building diversity in his own company led Johnson to partner with Lisa Tabor of CultureBrokers to develop a “Finding Diverse Fundraising Talent,” a panel discussion with national fundraising experts. The panel started by answering the question why it matters to have people of color represented in fundraising and then suggested ways to go about hiring differently. “You can’t post and pray. You have to do things differently. You have to look for connections. With filling positions, you can’t just turn on the spigot; you need to always be out there.”

The highest priority for any development officer, of course, is nurturing relationships with an organization's most significant donors and prospects. As the Covid-19 pandemic continues to create economic and social challenges, gift officers are taking a fresh look at these relationships.
