Beth Steinhorn, President

Beth partners with organizations and their leadership to increase their impact through strategic and innovative engagement. The author of multiple books and articles on strategic volunteer engagement, she is a popular speaker and trainer, known for her interactive and inspiring presentations. As a thought leader, Beth regularly participates in the national dialogue about volunteerism and engagement. Her consultations have included developing engagement strategies for Save the Children USA, Special Olympics Southern California, Best Friends Animal Society, and Repair the World.

Prior to becoming a consultant, Beth worked as an executive director and marketing director with education and faith-based organizations and spent years working with museums as an educator, manager, and anthropologist. She draws upon her anthropology experience still, helping organizations through the culture shift process – from viewing volunteer management as a program to embracing engagement as a strategy to fulfill mission. Beth has an undergraduate degree from Harvard University and also attended University of Washington for anthropology and museology. Connect with Beth on LinkedIn.
