At Friendship Place, to support the mission, vision and values, Andrea’s role is to oversee the organization’s HR (talent) function, and develop and execute talent strategy.  Additionally, in an effort to support Friendship Place’s mission and vision, Andrea ensures that the talent strategy promotes and uplifts Friendship Place’s core values, specifically in the areas of culture alignment, diversity, inclusion and equity, change management, performance and workforce effectiveness, continuous workforce improvement and planning, and learning and development.
