The Nonprofit Leadership Crisis: What Is Happening and How Can We Help?

Join us for a thoughtful conversation at the YWCA Evanston / North Shore to explore the leadership crisis facing many nonprofit organizations, particularly among leaders of color. Together we will explore what factors are contributing to people of color thinking twice about stepping up, the complex challenges that nonprofit leaders face, and concrete strategies to ensure diversity and sustainability in aspiring leaders.

Sponsored by The NextGroup and facilitated by Anna Assenmacher, Principal of Aries Consulting and Yusef Garcia of Monarq Advisors, we will be in conversation with:

  • ChiChi Okwu, Executive Director of EverThrive Illinois
  • Maggie Morales, Executive Director of The Lake County Community Foundation
  • Erin Venable, Vice President, Marketing and Communications at the YWCA Evanston / North Shore

Through thought-provoking discussion, we will explore both individual and institutional responses to the challenges facing nonprofit executives and aspiring leaders, while sharing trends in staffing, recruiting, and retention that will help inform our collective approach on how to ensure diversity and sustainability in nonprofit leadership.

A special thanks to the YWCA Evanston / North Shore for donating space at their Church Street location.
