In July 2018, StepUp Wilmington decided to bring in their first ever Operations Director and Sean Bynum was the man for the job.
A husband, father of four girls, US Air Force veteran, and NC native, Sean got straight to work immersing himself in the organization’s work.
“Why StepUp Wilmington? Our mission and our impact in the community. We are committed to justice and equity.” Bynum shared.
At StepUp Wilmington, Sean oversees the organization’s daily operations, a responsibility that has transformed in the wake of COVID-19.
“We shifted from face to face training to a virtual platform to safely meet the needs of staff and participants. We will continue to seek innovative ways to train individuals for satisfying work,” Sean said.
This change in operation has opened new doors by allowing StepUp Wilmington to expand their reach to folks that may be experiencing barriers that make it difficult to attend in-person training like transportation or childcare, thus allowing the organization to serve and place more people into jobs in coming years.
“We will use a combination of in-person and virtual training following COVID-19 in an effort to expand our presence throughout the region.”
Thank you for all that you do, Sean!
