ADVANCE is the inaugural half-day conference — organized by Generocity and supported by Create X Change — dedicated to moving forward ideas, organizations and leaders that drive smarter impact. Professionals come to ADVANCE to make connections and leave with a clear call-to action on how to better serve the community. They’ll advance their careers, organizations and missions.

Alongside a VIP author meet-and-greet, you will hear a keynote speech delivered by Yancey Strickler diving into different themes covered in his book, such as the pursuit of wealth and recalibration of the perception of value. Afterwards, you can expect to enjoy an interactive panel and presentations focused on the following topics:

  • Fitting your goals within society’s to contribute to a generous and fair future
  • Balancing activism and pragmatism in an era of social justice
  • Redefining value for your organization and self

By popular demand, we are working with local partners to incorporate a few wellness activities into the programming. It is imperative for us to not only discuss the sustainability of ideas or organizations, but also the individuals keeping them alive.
