Event description

Description

Despite your job or role, you have experienced culture at work. Do you feel like your culture is missing something? That it can be better? Not know where to start? If you’re answering yes, then this class if for you! Establishing a healthy culture that has practical applications is really important. Culture is truly the mortar to the mission – without a good mortar, what you’re creating will not be long-lasting. It is not enough to know core values; you have to be prepared to identify what those things look like in the day-to-day operations.

This is not another conceptual talk on culture. The results of this class will leave you with an actionable plan to make real improvements. Together, we will:

  • demystify the term “culture”
  • identify ways your culture is not working
  • understand why nonprofits in particular lack initiatives to create a healthy culture
  • develop custom tactics and strategies to get over your culture rut

Content is designed for all job roles (managers and non-managers). If you’re interested in optimizing the work of your nonprofit, make sure to join us!


Facilitated by Michelle Vryn, CFRE, Nonprofit Fundraiser & Strategist

Michelle has a healthy obsession for social impact. She has 10 years of experience in nonprofits and public service. Over that time, she has helped raise tens of millions of dollars, managed development and communications teams and successfully created and led nonprofit boards. Optimizing the potential of nonprofits to create real, scalable impact is the main driver of her work. Before joining Bat Conservation International (headquartered in Austin), Michelle previously worked for the Nature Discovery Center, Dini Spheris, Galveston Bay Foundation and the University of Texas–San Antonio. Through these experiences, Michelle has witnessed the social alchemy in many workplaces and has analyzed trends in what makes up a thriving culture. She has also led initiatives to inspire trust at all levels of an organization.

Michelle holds a bachelor’s degree in cultural anthropology, master’s degree in environmental anthropology, and a Certified Fund Raising Executive (CFRE) certification. She proudly serves on the Association of Fundraising Professionals (AFP)-Greater Austin Chapter Board of Directors and is also an active mentor. Outside of work, you’ll find Michelle reading anything by Brené Brown, hiking on Austin’s beautiful trails, and dropping in on live music around town.
