It's Zero HIV Stigma Day! HIV stigma involves devaluing and labeling individuals based on certain attributes, leading to social exclusion and marginalization. This affects perceptions and beliefs, often resulting in discrimination and denial of rights.

HIV stigma can manifest in various ways:
Institutional: Policies and practices that create barriers.
Intersectional: Overlapping forms of discrimination.
Self-inflicted: Internalized negative perceptions that harm mental health.

Let's stand together to raise awareness and fight against HIV stigma. Share your thoughts and join the conversation.

👤 Employee Spotlight 👤

Meet David Garrett, the amazing Executive Assistant to our CEO, Kathie Hiers! 🌟 David has been an integral part of our team, ensuring everything runs smoothly and efficiently.

David's dedication, attention to detail, and passion for excellence make him a standout member of our organization. Whether he's coordinating meetings, managing schedules, or providing valuable support, David's contributions are truly invaluable.

Join us in celebrating David and all the hard work he puts into making our workplace the best it can be!

1. How long have you been with the company? I will have been with AIDS Alabama eight years this coming November 16th.

2. What is your job title and what does your job entail? I am the Executive Assistant to our agency’s CEO, Kathie Hiers. My job duties include making the traveling arrangements for Kathie’s many work trips, scheduling her meetings, planning our board meetings, maintaining board records, and creating memos…just to name a few.

3. What is the best advice you can give to someone who is starting their career? I would encourage someone starting a new job to listen, ask questions, and do the very best job they can possibly do with whatever task is presented to them.

4. What is the best piece of advice you ever received? To always be honest in everything you do, and to treat people the way you want to be treated.

5. In terms of successes, which accomplishments are you most proud of? When I started with AIDS Alabama there was definitely a learning curve for me. Most of my background came from the corporate world. With the help of many people at our agency, I have been able to learn a lot about the nonprofit world as well.

6. Who are some of your biggest inspirations within the agency? Hands down it would have to be Kathie Hiers. Despite the fact I had no prior nonprofit experience, she took me under her wing and patiently showed me the many ropes. She has been an amazing mentor to me. Our clients also inspire me with their tenacity to prevail despite the many adversities some of them face.

7. How have you grown professionally while on our team? I’ve learned a lot about working with a board and board members as well as nurturing professional relationships with our amazing staff. I’m a big believer in team work.

8. Which aspect of AIDS Alabama’s mission do you value the most and why? I love that our agency’s number one goal is to simply help people and meet their needs.

9. What’s your secret talent no one knows about? I was a member of the Auburn University Singers show choir and sang tenor 1. We performed all over the United States and acted as ambassadors for the University. I got to perform everywhere from the Pentagon to the Rocky Mountains. I jokingly tell people that I was Glee before Glee was cool.

10. Tell me something about you that most people don’t know. I have written three plays that have all been staged at one time or another. One of them is currently in production now and will open at the end of May. I also like to draw and paint.
