AADO is excited to announce the Executive Recruitment
Pre-Screening Program.

Working in partnership with organizations, institutions of higher education, and search firms, AADO will assist in the process of vetting potential candidates for senior level
fundraising positions.

The goal is to ensure that AADO members are treated justly and with respect throughout the recruiting process, and are considered viable candidates and not simply numbers in the candidate pool. This exciting initiative is in its early stages and will be refined as it grows. If you are interested in being added to the database, please follow the link to complete the form.

SUMMER UPDATE
The summer is off to a fantastic start as AADO partnered with a host of organizations to provide an opportunity for a networking event around growing the pipeline of fundraising professionals of color. More than 50 professionals of color gathered in NYC to celebrate diversity in the fundraising profession. The picture above was taken in front of Thurgood Marshall's desk at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund which hosted the event thanks to the generosity of Renee Cutting, Chief Development Officer. Other partners included AFP NYC Chapter, Women in Development, CASE, and Cause Effective.

More events are being planned for the fall so stay tuned for additional information.

Have a wonderful and safe summer!
