Managing change, a critical responsibility for nonprofit leaders in a time of continual change, will be the focus of a luncheon workshop for nonprofits April 17 in Charlotte.
Sponsored by the Philanthropy Journal, an online publication for North Carolina nonprofits, the Lunch ‘n' Learn workshop will feature Anita Brown-Graham, director of the Institute for Emerging Issues at N.C. State University in Raleigh and a trustee of the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation in Winston-Salem.
The workshop, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. at the Embassy Suites Hotel Charlotte, will focus on strategies for transformational leadership, including how to create and communicate shared visions, guide carefully crafted coalitions, anchor short-term wins, and sustain broad-based momentum.
"Leaders in every organization are now being asked to adapt quickly to change and manage increasingly complex projects and workforces," says Barbara Goodman, president of the Raleigh-based A.J. Fletcher Foundation, which publishes the Philanthropy Journal. "Anita Brown-Graham's experiences, which include leading programs of work at the Institute for Emerging Issues around public policy initiatives, make her uniquely qualified to provide guidance and strategies for nonprofit leadership."
The registration fee for the workshop is $20 for Philanthropy Journal subscribers, and $30 for non-subscribers. Lunch will be served and is included in the registration fee. The registration deadline is April 11.
The Philanthropy Journal's statewide Lunch 'n' Learn series targets nonprofit professionals, board members, and volunteers in North Carolina. The event is co-sponsored by Bank of America, Paragon Commercial Bank, United Way of Central Carolinas, NCGives and the Z. Smith Reynolds Foundation,
