Good Ideas Forum

npt-good-ideas-v2Topics to challenge and enlighten the way we think of talent and leadership in our nonprofit organizations.

Talent is your most important asset.

We believe that focused attention on building leaders is one of the most effective means to catalyze communities.

Nonprofit Talent is dedicated to uplifting the nonprofit sector by prioritizing talent and leadership in organizational capacity conversations.

To achieve this, we’ve created a series of provocative sessions designed to challenge and inform varied stakeholders about the value of talent investment to build leadership capacity across the sector, and beyond.

Session Description

With the challenges facing our communities being more complex and more numerous, the nonprofit sector–both service providers and funders–is more needed than ever. But we face our own barriers to effectiveness. Demographics are changing, and the way that we have done things in the past may no longer work. We must examine the philosophies and biases that drive our work, abandon outdated thinking and practices, own the power and influence we have, and collaborate to make the world better. Vu Le is the dude behind, formerly, and Executive Director of Seattle-based nonprofit Rainier Valley Corps, which works to bring more leaders of color into nonprofit work. Prepare to laugh and think.
