The future is uncertain. But that doesn’t mean you can’t prepare for it, or help to shape it.
At this year’s Nonprofit Management Institute
, hosted annually by the Stanford Social Innovation Review
, we’ll provide you with the tools and tips — and facilitate deeper connections with a diverse group of colleagues from around the world — that you’ll need to navigate four areas that are sure to disproportionately affect leaders across all sectors of society in the years ahead. From a rapidly evolving workforce to the deployment of AI, the influence of politics on the culture to a changing climate, we’ll focus on areas all decisionmakers in our sector need to address.
By doing so, we’ll better support our people, strengthen our programs, and have a positive impact on the society at large.
This convening, once again returning as a hybrid conference, will feature a series of thought-provoking plenary sessions, workshops, breakout sessions, and networking opportunities
over two days of professional learning and development.
Some of the topics we’re considering addressing include:
- • Building a new Generation of Leaders – A discussion dedicated to surfacing effective strategies for recruiting, developing, and managing early career and emerging talent.
- • Using AI for Nonprofit Fundraising – A how-to guide for leveraging generative AI to optimize an organization’s bottom line, ensuring substantial growth in an increasingly digital world.
- • The Effect of Climate Change on Our Work – An exploration of adaptive strategies and resilience-building measures as nonprofit groups increasingly face frontline environmental challenges.
- • The Ethics of AI in the Workplace – A practical session tacking the nuanced considerations surrounding AI implementation in the workplace, emphasizing responsible practices that will increase capacity and productivity, while maintaining trust with all stakeholders.
- • DEI Programs Under Threat – How to maintain the gains of diversity, equity, and inclusion initiatives while continuing to build organizations that are welcoming to all.
- • Taking Action: Nonprofit Advocacy in Uncertain Times – Getting out the vote and lobbying for good to increase awareness of and support for your organization’s primary cause.
