Professional staff is frequently an essential element of an effective family philanthropy effort; however, it can be a difficult construct to navigate. What are the skills and expertise required for staff members to be successful in family philanthropy? How can philanthropic families prepare to hire the right talent? What does the hiring process entail and what are some common missteps to avoid? And, how can families be thoughtful partners to their staff once they are onboarded? Join us for a conversation on how to hire and prepare staff for success.
