The world has changed dramatically in recent years, posing new opportunities and challenges for nonprofit organizations. Racial reckoning has created new pathways for some of our most important work, and asks us to rethink hiring, governance, and conflict resolution. Digital outlets strengthen community voices, calling for greater transparency and accountability. Technology creates more efficient ways of working, but threatens our very livelihood as workers. And of course, COVID changed everything, forever upending office culture and inspiring experiments like the four-day work week.
It's a lot to manage.
This year’s Nonprofit Management Institute
, presented annually by Stanford Social Innovation Review
and returning as a hybrid conference, explores pragmatic and tactical approaches to these emerging challenges and opportunities. Over two days of learning, development, and inspiration, nonprofit leadership and staff will learn enhanced skills for agility and adaptability, and emerge newly equipped to thrive in evolving circumstances.
In addition to time and activities for networking, NMI this year will cover topics like:
- • Lessons in Intersectional Leadership – Is leadership a common code? Or can we draw lessons from styles informed by gender, race, and life experience to create a modern model?
- • The Future of Work – From a four-day work week to all remote staff to leadership sabbaticals, find a model that works for your organization.
- • Justice for Nonprofit Workers – A look at trends in unionization and worker cooperatives, and how nonprofits might be impacted.
- • The New Fundraising – What’s changed in philanthropy and grant making, and how to adapt.
- • Workplace Wellbeing – What do workers want now, and how to be a great place to work.
- • It's Not Just AI – How to effectively use data, AI, and new tools for nonprofit good and workplace satisfaction.
- • Decolonizing The Nonprofit Board – Institute a board recruiting process that intentionally seeks out the wisdom, experience, and expertise of the communities you serve.
Once again, this year’s NMI
