Changing Work for Good: Nonprofit News #2


Back toward the latter half of June, the New York Times published an interesting article about the moves that baby-boomers are making in leaving their corporate careers for the nonprofit and social sector. (We'll link it up here.)

Times reporter Christopher Farrell, focused on the fact that more and more accomplished and experienced corporate leaders are choosing to move into social sector jobs. Many of these do-gooders are seeking to make a more meaningful impact during the latter stages of their careers -- and some even forgoing retirement for a while to do so.

One of the takeaways from the article is that, despite their being programs like Social Venture, Encore Fellowships, and Experience Matters, there still needs to be a better matchmaking process for more experienced private sector transitioners and the nonprofits seeking to hire them.
