Nonprofit Management Institute


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.



This year’s NMI will be a HYBRID conference and will include in-person and virtual attendees, live presentations, interactive workshops, and engaging in-person only breakout sessions.

Join SSIR and nonprofit colleagues from around the world in-person or virtually for NMI 2024, “What's Next for the Social Sector? Strategies and Tactics for Today's Agile Leaders,” on September 17 & 18 at Stanford University.
