April 20, 2022 – Engaging Emerging Nonprofit Practitioners

Wednesday, April 20
11:00 A.M. Eastern
Let’s Talk: Engaging Emerging Nonprofit Practitioners Detroit’s nonprofit sector is growing, and local leaders are thinking strategically about how to expand the reach and longevity of their organizations. One thing on their minds is bringing in new talent with fresh ideas and a strong passion for the mission into the sector. Many practitioners still wonder how to find, hire, and prepare younger leaders and those newer to the nonprofit world to thrive in their work and to take the helm in the future.

Join communications fellow Mark Navarro as he talks with Alejandra Gomez of Urban Neighborhood Initiatives, Destynee Nixon of Developing KIDS, and Tyler Parlor of the Council of Michigan Foundations and the Ralph C. Wilson, Jr. Foundation about what nonprofits can do to recruit, retain, and develop newer workers in the nonprofit sector, all in service of an organization’s mission.
