Generocity to publish ‘Forward Focus’, a series profiling nonprofit leaders’ views on resilience and recovery in 2020

Structured around this year’s ADVANCE conference theme, the series offers leaders’ insights on coping with a pandemic, economic crisis, systemic racism, and more in a year of unprecedented challenges.

This year, Generocity’s annual professional development conference — ADVANCE — is focused on navigating the “new normal” ushered in by a global pandemic and a national mobilization for racial justice.

To prepare for the conference, we’ve interviewed a select group of leaders in the social impact sector on a variety of topics, including navigating the economic impact of the pandemic, innovative professional development efforts, and addressing system racism in the workplace and community.

These nonprofit leaders hail from a variety of backgrounds, and the organizations they represent range in size, mission, and geography.

Over the next few weeks, we will be releasing a series of stories highlighting the experiences and work of these leaders. The goal of the series is two-fold: 1) to illuminate shared challenges and strategies for success across the sector and 2) to help nonprofit professionals make the most of the virtual ADVANCE conference on Nov. 12.

Learn more about ADVANCE and register for the free conference today. Subscribe to Generocity’s email list to stay updated on Philadelphia’s social impact sector.
