Women make up about 73 percent of nonprofit employees in the United States, and yet, the pay gap and leadership imbalance persist.
Enter Philadelphia’s first Women in Nonprofit Leadership Conference, founded by Your Part-Time Controller partner Jennifer Alleva.
The event aims to convene both current nonprofit leaders and those interested in holding leadership positions to share best practices and learn about topics such as capacity building, collaboration and diversity.
Here are the basics:
- Date — Wednesday, April 5
- Time — 8 a.m. to 1:30 p.m.
- Location — University of Pennsylvania’s Houston Hall
- Cost — $75; includes breakfast and lunch
The schedule will include two plenaries and one panel, which will cover diversity, inclusion and mentorship, as well as a ton of networking time.
Speakers include Uneeka Jay, founding principle at performance consulting firm Rewrite 365; Melissa Weiler Gerber, president and CEO of healthcare advocacy organization AccessMatters; Tine Hansen-Turton, president and CEO of human services nonprofit Woods Resources, Inc.; Talia Adell Stinson, a performance management analyst with the City of Philadelphia; and Nancy Dunleavy, president, founder and CEO of professional services firm Dunleavy & Associates.
