Managing a Mission
But because of the nature of the issues the organization addresses, designing and producing brochures, press kits, newsletters, magazines and books, all with a small staff and under a strict budget, can yield even greater rewards than many other production people experience. "We can expose issues, such as, in 1999, the dog and cat fur trade in China—I don't think anything will ever compare to the press and excitement of this going public, and seeing laws being passed so quickly to ban the fur from being imported into the U.S.," says Jaworski. "What we do is produce publications to make people aware, to encourage them to do the right thing."
In fact, this is what drew Jaworski to The HSUS six years ago, after 20 years of working for for-profit companies, she says. "I worked for so many years on things I didn't particularly care about … I wanted to make a difference."
