ANCA Member CONNECTS: Hiring and Retaining a Diverse and Engaged Staff

Thursday, January 26
10-11:30am AKT / 11am-12:30pm PT / 12-1:30pm MT / 1-2:30pm CT / 2-3:30pm ET

Often, the nature center field is up against many obstacles when it comes to recruiting, hiring, and retaining staff. Let’s discuss best practices on recruiting fundamentals, promoting diverse and inclusive workplace culture, and developing an engaging onboarding plan. Let’s build a toolbox together to hire and retain the best staff for your nature center & make them feel welcome.

This discussion will be facilitated by:

  • Leigh Ann Miller, Executive Director at Grange Insurance Audubon Center

  • Sara Beesley, Center Director at Mitchell Lake Audubon Center


ANCA Member CONNECTS are virtual gatherings for ANCA Members to address a topic within the nature & environmental learning center field. Attendees need to be current Student, Emeritus, Associate, or Professional Members or an employee or board member of an Organization Member. Not a member? You can join here. Want to upgrade to an Organization membership? Please email membership@natctr.org.

In ANCA Member CONNECTS, all attendees contribute to a shared dialogue that brings out an abundance of perspectives, possibilities, and renewed energy. We invite you to participate in the discussion and bring your questions, challenges, and solutions to the conversation.
