BVU’s 25th Anniversary Nonprofit Summit

October 9, 2018 @ 1:30 pm - 5:30 pm

$125 – $150

To celebrate BVU’s 25th Anniversary, we are bringing two nationally-acclaimed keynotes to Northeast Ohio, Vu Le of Nonprofit AF (formerly Nonprofits with Balls) and Lisa Ryan of Grategy, IncVu and Lisa will deliver powerful and provocative presentations challenging us to create new perspectives on workplace engagement and on equity, diversity, and inclusion.  Through interaction and humor, we will learn and share ideas, and leave with tools to implement on the job and in the boardroom.

Equity, Diversity, and Inclusion, and the Future of the Nonprofit Sector
Vu Le, Nonprofit AF

In this sociopolitical climate, nonprofits play a critical role in protecting and advancing our communities. However, as demographics change, we must discuss philosophies and practices that may be helping or hindering our work and access to resources.  Things like the overhead myth, our relationship with for-profits, the way we are perceived by the public, and the way we work with one another. Among these philosophies and practices– equity, diversity, and inclusion are vital concepts we must all understand.  But what do they look like in practice?  How do we live out these values? How will we move our sector into the future?  We will talk about these topics and more in a presentation that is provocative but also filled with humor.

The Engaged Workplace; Is There Really Another Option?”
Lisa Ryan, Grategy, Inc.

Let’s face it. According to Gallup, 68% of the workforce is either disengaged or actively disengaged.
What impact does that have on our organizational culture? On our ability to retain employees and board members? To achieve productivity, meaningful outcomes, and increased revenue? Accomplishing our missions depends on a strong organizational culture built on a firm foundation of trust, support, recognition, and commitment to service. This session is chock-full of ideas, interactions and implementable actions that we can put into practice immediately.
