Time & Location
About the Event
Get your lunch ready and join us for this great program led by Sharee Fowler and Nigel Alston
Policies that help move institutional cultures toward seriously valuing diversity are a starting point, but actively embodying these values and principles is required to effect significant change. As a non-profit leader, your practice and your presence matters. This session will explore what it takes to sustain the kind of leadership needed to create truly equitable and inclusive organizations, systems, and communities.
