This week, the world learned something that those at The Fellowship already knew – what a great workplace The Fellowship is! The leading publication, The NonProfit Times, just released its list of best nonprofits to work for in 2021- and The Fellowship made the cut! Our President Yael Eckstein and Fellowship Global COO Robin Van Etten, two of the leaders who continue to forge the best path for all of us – our employees, our donors, and the millions of needy people we help – responded to this honor:
“I’m grateful for this honor,” said Fellowship President and CEO Yael Eckstein. “A leader is only as strong as the staff, just as the staff is only as strong as a leader. I attribute our strength to our amazing donors and supporters and to our dedicated staff who look at their work not just as a job, but a mission.
“Everyone at The Fellowship, at all levels of the organization, works hard every day both to fulfill our mission of helping Jews in need around the world and to make this a great place to work. I’m so proud to head an organization where people work together in a spirit of respect and cooperation and are nurtured professionally and valued personally…”
“The staff members in all of our global offices, like our supporters, are mission-driven,” said Robin Van Etten, The Fellowship‘s Global COO. “They’re here to save the lives of Jewish people in need, to bring aid to those who are isolated, forgotten, and have no one else to turn to. And they’re equally committed to being supportive and respectful of each other as they do this vitally important work. I’m so proud of what we’ve created at The Fellowship, and I’m so pleased that it is being publicly recognized.”
