Diversity in Associations

Association Impact
October 5, 2017 1:00 PM


The role of the Chief Staff Executive in creating a culture of diversity and inclusion is one of the major elements of consideration in today's association. Peter Spadafore, the guest host, interviewed two icons and leaders in ASAE's successful diversity initiative; Velma Hart, CAE and Aaron D. Wolowiec, MSA, CAE, CMP, CTA. Their conversation will help you understand the importance of setting a culture of inclusion and its significance on membership and staff relations.


Diversity is a key priority for ASAE as is the case for most, if not all, major corporations. The hiring, promotion, retention, and recruitment of a diverse staff are all part of any successful plan. Associations are beginning to focus their diversity efforts in ways that are broader in scope. Furthermore, associations and organizations are implementing diversity initiatives which reach across the profession as a whole.

Learn about these important perspectives and how the Chief Staff Executive and their team can research their demographics to identify segments in their membership. From there, they identify leaders in minority groups to mentor and influence change. Learn more about organizations that have successfully utilized diversity and inclusion to grow their organization. This critical topic will affect the future of organizational images, guest speakers, and the make-up of governance groups.
