Good Ideas Forum


Topics 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.


Thank you to all who made our sold out event with The Pittsburgh Foundation a success!

Nonprofits and the news media are trusted sources for the public, but both sectors are facing unprecedented budgetary challenges and increasing demands that must be met by fewer staff. In this Good Ideas Forum, Pittsburgh Foundation President & CEO Maxwell King will lead a lively discussion with Pittsburgh news organization executives – David Shribman, executive editor of The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette, Halle Stockton, managing editor of PublicSource, Ervin Dyer, past president of Pittsburgh Black Media Federation and Terry O’Reilly, president and CEO of Pittsburgh Community Broadcasting Corporation/WESA-FM – as well as Andrew Conte, journalism educator and observer as executive director of the Media Innovation program at Point Park University.

The group will examine how nonprofit leaders can be effective communicators in a news industry environment undergoing wrenching changes. Included in the discussion: the loss of specialized journalism, in which reporters build source and subject expertise covering the sectors in which nonprofits work. Join us for an energetic discussion and audience interaction on how nonprofits and the media can work together to create a more engaged, equitable and informed society.
