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.
