    Imagining the Future Nonprofit

    January 10, 2020 7:30 am to 11:15 am

    Vu Le at AFP

    Registration and breakfast – 7:30 am – 8:00 am

    Keynote: Imagining the Future Nonprofit – 8:00 am – 9:00 am

    In this sociopolitical climate, nonprofits are pivotal to building a just and inclusive world. But we continue to face challenges, including funding dynamics, bizsplaining, and chairs held together with duct tape. What does the future of our sector look like? How do we own our awesomeness and unleash our full potential?

    Workshop: Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion in Everyday Practice – 9:15 am -11:15 am

    Our sector has been talking a lot about DEI. But what does it look like on the ground? In this interactive session, we will explore what actions we can take in a host of areas—board development, fundraising, evaluation, hiring, communications, etc.—in order to create a vibrant, inclusive world.
