Our executive director, Jeannette Huezo, has been very busy this year! Take a moment to catch up on the awards she's received, the panels she's spoken on, and the work she's led.
May Day Labor Panel at Boston's Lowell Park
On May 4th, 2019, Jeannette was on the labor day panel at Lowell National Historical Park.
Leader Program at the Institute for Nonprofit Practice
Back in the summer of 2018, Jeannette was invited to enroll in a special program for nonprofit leaders at the Institute for Nonprofit Practice. Since then, Jeannette's attended weekly sessions with the other fellows in the program, which she calls "a dream to be a part of." Jeannette says one of the most important parts of the class was learning from peers; the class became a little family to support and advise each other. A great deal of what was learned in the class came not from a teacher, but from peers also practicing nonprofit management.
I’ve been in the nonprofit world as an organizer, trainer, and activist my entire life and was appointed the Executive Director of United for a Fair Economy four years ago. The Institute helped me improve my skills as a manager and become a stronger leader. It was a dream to be a part of INP and to learn from the diverse experiences of other leaders working to transform their organizations and communities.
"Fair Wages Philadelphia" Panel
In early May, Jeannette spoke on a panel about fair wages in Philadelphia.
