Talent Management is dedicated to executing a comprehensive talent strategy that helps its stakeholders support and drive a culture of engagement and philanthropy at Virginia Commonwealth University.
We partner with leaders throughout the Office of Development and Alumni Relations to identify and plan for current and future talent needs, foster a culture of inclusivity that supports both broad and specific diversity initiatives, leverage the educational and institutional benefits of learning and career pathways and engage all employees to help them thrive.
We provide employees and managers with a range of resources, including talent sourcing, professional development, leadership training and educational opportunities to cultivate the individual and collective pursuit of excellence.
Hold ourselves to the highest standards of accountability, honesty and dependability.
Honor diversity in all forms through collaboration, respect and trust.
Consider every challenge an opportunity to work with an open mind, a flexible attitude and an innovative mindset.
Celebrate the impact of our work as well as our collective and individual achievements.
Always reach higher to achieve best-in-class, donor-centric results.
