Calgary Foundation

In cooperation with the Calgary Foundation and the Human Resources Association of Calgary Legacy Fund, University of Calgary Continuing Education facilitates two five-day course sessions of Human Resources Management for the charitable (not-for-profit) sector and one-day seminars.

The goal of this partnership is to advance the human resources development capacity of Calgary's charitable sector. These courses are customized, priced to meet the specific needs of not-for-profit and charitable organizations, and align with the CPHR Competency Framework.

These seminars may be used for credit toward several Continuing Education certificate programs including:


COR 317 Human Resources Management for Charitable Organizations
Address the theoretical and practical needs of executive directors, managers of operations and other leaders in charitable organizations required to perform human resources functions as a part of their day-to-day or weekly duties.

COR 377 Implementing Change – Calgary Foundation
Increasingly, today's organizations are running lean and mean, and creating the kind of environment that necessitates frequent change. Many organizational changes do not succeed. While some people are energized and motivated by change, others don't embrace change at all. This workshop offers an approach and tools and templates to plan for and implement more effectively the people side of organizational change, leading to more business and professional success. This course is best suited to people planning for an upcoming change or desiring a practical introduction to the tools of change management.

COR 378 Overview of Strategic Planning – Calgary Foundation
"If you don't know where you're going, you'll probably end up someplace else." This well-known saying illustrates why organizations need strategic plans. Strategic plans guide and map the desired future for organizations. In this seminar, learn the basic concepts and processes involved in strategic planning, understand why strategic planning is essential for the success of an organization, and realize that the key to making the plan work is a commitment to implementation.
