Nonprofit Leadership Conference

We all have capacity to be leaders in our organizations and communities. Whether through positional leadership or through the actions we take in our everyday lives, leadership defines our work and directs the change taking place in our communities.
Leaders of all levels and backgrounds will be essential to building future leadership inspired and supported by our past successes and traditions. At this day-long gathering attendees will be able to dialogue about personal and organizational change. We'll refresh our knowledge, focus on key values, recognize current trends and create a stronger community of nonprofit leaders.
The Nonprofit Leadership Conference is co-hosted by the Public and Nonprofit Leadership Center (PNLC) at the Humphrey School of Public Affairs and the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits (MCN).

Dynamic Adaptability: Nonprofit Sector Vibrancy in Changing Times

During our morning keynote session, Shena Ashley, director of the Center on Nonprofits and Philanthropy at the Urban Institute, will discuss nonprofit leaders' adaptability in changing times.

Whether large or small, new or established, many social sector and charitable organizations are dealing with challenging fluctuations in the external environment that are disrupting old ways of operating and unsettling long-held power relationships. In this address, Dr. Ashley will: provide perspective on the general trends and federal policy shifts impacting the underlying structure of the nonprofit sector, provide some exemplary profiles of change challenges faced by organizational leaders, and provide some bright spots of practice that highlight opportunities for bold and innovative responses.
