I would like to see some diversity of staff at this organization. lupus affects women and women of color disproportionately. It would be nice to see women of color in significant roles here and at the National level.
We believe LFA-DC/MD/VA does well at staff retention. Of our 6 employees (4 FT / 2 PT), our CEO has been with us almost 5 years, Director of Patient Services 3 years, and both the Volunteer Coordinator and Patient Navigator 2 years. Unfortunately, we don’t recognize Lucy’s name, but she gives us an opportunity to tell about our great intern program. 3 times a year, we get a new group of 3 – 5 interns who do wonderful projects with us for 2 – 3 months. Those new faces could be perceived as turnovers, but we are strengthened by their energy and talent, and they leave us as lifelong lupus advocates.
