Manager, Volunteer Engagement, WE Day
Reflecting on the role WE played in shaping her career path, Diana said,
WE has played an instrumental role in shaping my career path. Prior to working at WE, I held positions in the corporate sector, but I never felt at home the way I did when I started working at WE and throughout my time there. I fell in love with the non-profit sector and, for the first time in my career, I was making a difference in the world and was a part of something bigger than myself. It was also the first time I worked with volunteers in a full-time capacity and WE afforded me the opportunity to build out a volunteer engagement program for hundreds through WE Day. Their belief in my abilities and transferable skills challenged me to accomplish much more than I even thought possible. Today, I continue to thrive in the Volunteer Management field, and it is because of the skills, experiences and wonderful people I met through my experience working at WE.
Thinking about what one key thing she learned while at WE, Diana reflected,
I learned so many key things working at WE that it’s difficult to choose just one! It takes a village. Anything is possible but it takes a village of passionate individuals to come together to make incredible things happen. From the staff members to hundreds of selfless volunteers I worked with. Together we were able to bring together hundreds of thousands of youth, at WE Day, who wanted to make a difference in the world, just like I did.
Describing the skills she developed while at WE that helped her get to where she is now, Diana said,
Relationship building was one of the key skills I developed in my role at WE and it helped me get to where I am today. The leadership opportunities I was given were incredible and helped me expand on my communication skills, team-building skills and problem-solving skills. I am more confident now than I was before I started working at WE.
