Opportunity in Change: Preparing Boston for Leader Transitions and New Models of Nonprofit Leadership

Greater Boston nonprofits stand at a historic inflection point given the unprecedented volume of leadership transition within and outside the sector. While several reports over the past decade have predicted a "crisis" created by the mass exit of Baby Boomers from their nonprofit leadership roles, combined with an insufficient investment in succession planning and leadership development, these sobering realities can be viewed through a new lens: not as a crisis, but as an opportunity.

Join us on March 24, from 8:30 - 10:30 a.m. for the release of a joint report by Third Sector New England and the Boston Foundation that examines these sector-wide changes and the opportunities to strengthen nonprofits and their leaders by seizing upon this moment.
