Conferences and Forums
Our annual convenings and periodic conferences are designed to stimulate thought about best practices of nonprofit leadership and management, to provide high-level training from leading authorities around contemporary issues facing the nonprofit sector, and to share the latest research findings about the sector.
Our 29th annual convening is October 28, 2021. Inclusive teams are high-performing teams. Researchers, from the Harvard Business Review to McKinsey, have found that diverse organizations are more innovative, make better decisions and outperform more homogenous organizations. Join our content partner Mint Lemonade to help you and your team understand your narratives and identities and the power of different experiences as you build an "effective collective" culture.
Our forum was April 28, 2021, with a virtual format. The theme was Volunteers: Essential Workers for Community Solutions. Volunteers, donors, staff, board members and interested community stakeholders joined us for a forum that revealed the role and promise of skills-based volunteers, the essential nonprofit “workforce” for the “now and the next” in advancing community well-being.
