Program Description: 

We all succeed when everyone at a nonprofit works in harmony. But when schedules are tight, workloads overwhelming, communication siloed, and staff and board are in their separate corners, internal issues are sure to impede effectiveness. Join a panel of local nonprofit peers from executive, finance, program, and development staff to learn tips for increasing communication and engaging all departments in an organization-wide culture of philanthropy.

Learning objectives:

  • Leave with a stronger understanding of the challenges facing different nonprofit departments
  • Gain tips to strengthen interdepartmental communication and connection
  • Takeaway tangible ideas for strengthening or changing the internal culture of your nonprofit
