Presented by Lisa Salomon

Nonprofit leaders across the country are working to pivot their organizations to adequately respond to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and the movement to dismantle systemic racism. By using this moment to meaningfully engage with board, staff, and community, these times of challenge can simultaneously become times of tremendous opportunity.

Join SIP at JFKU along with Lisa Salomon, founder of Salomon Strategic Development, and a panel of local nonprofit leaders for a discussion focused on keeping board members engaged during a time of great social and cultural shift. From helping to caretake donors and other constituents to driving organizational change, board members can meaningfully participate during this pivotal period in time.

“This moment of pause is an incredible opportunity for nonprofits to do some deep internal work in looking at organizational structures at both the board and staff levels,” says Salomon. “By engaging board members in deep discussion around organizational stewardship, modeling, and sustainability, organizations have a real opportunity to get it right coming out of this and to redefine what ‘right’ looks like to individual organizations.”

The goal of this event is to initiate this big conversation and spark dialogue that you will continue within your own organizations. Join us to get the conversation started!
