Juli Durda Director of Human Resources
Inspiration: “We all do better when we all do better.” — Paul Wellstone
What working in this community means to me: “The opportunity to see our community thrive is my passion. Working at Greater Twin Cities United Way has given me the opportunity to align my passion with my career as a human resources business partner. The outstanding work that our organization supports throughout the nine-county area in which we serve and our very talented team of employees fuels my passion daily!”
As director of human resources, Juli is responsible for supporting the organization’s talent through recruiting, onboarding, equity leadership support, career and organizational development, performance management, compensation and benefits, employee relations, risk management and training.
Juli has over 25 years of human resources leadership experience working in services, technology manufacturing, consulting and retail industries. She completed her undergraduate and graduate coursework at the University of Minnesota. Juli has her senior professional in human resources and Korn Ferry competency framework and agility certifications and is a qualified administrator for the Intercultural Development Inventory and DISC assessments.
Juli and her husband, Tom, call Eden Prairie home with regular trips to Florida in the winter. They enjoy golf, all things Minnesota Gopher sports, boating and biking.
