NSC Workshop Calendar

GWCF's workshops for nonprofit leaders and their staff focus on practical programs. We believe in the power of peers learning together and we engage high-quality presenters in order to foster a strong network of nonprofits in Central Massachusetts.

Foundation offices are closed for the foreseeable future due to COVID-19, but NSC events continue virtually! Please explore offerings below and contact Sarah Shugrue if you have any questions.

Igniting Equity

Date: Thursday, May 27
Time: 9:00 - 10:30 AM

About the Session

Organizations are most successful in reaching their Diversity, Equity, Inclusion & Belonging (DEIB) goals when they commit to a multi step process. Is your organization ready to commit to this work or in the beginning stages? Join Valerie to learn more about Ignite, her five-step process for organizations and an open and honest conversation on how to continue to push your DEIB work forward.

Valerie will also announce exciting details about her upcoming equity leadership cohort program in partnership with the Nonprofit Support Center. 12-16 organizations who are dedicated to their DEIB journey will be selected to deeply engage with their peers and Valerie on the ignite model. Don’t miss your opportunity to learn more and the details on how to apply.
