When you surround yourself with excellence, you’re bound to catch some, too.
The Women in Nonprofit Leadership Conference (WNLC) was launched in 2017 with the goal bringing women leaders in the nonprofit sector together in order to learn from each other, build networks and discuss issues relevant to their field.

WNLC co-organizer Erika McDaniel spoke to Generocity last month about how her team plans an inclusive event, from assembling a capable team to choosing partners dedicated to the mission.

“It is important to be thoughtful and strategic in planning the leadership group but not thinking that any one or two people can do by themselves,” McDaniel said. “I know as women we sometimes think that, ‘I can do it, I can handle it, I can take this thing over.’ It is really good to delegate work.”
Inspiring advice even beyond event planning.
Registration is open through Wednesday, April 4.
