Ready for the path forward? Join these speakers at this Thursday’s Advance conference

This Thursday, November 12, get the tools and insight to navigate the challenges of today, tomorrow, and beyond.
ADVANCE 2020 is a half-day virtual conference from Generocity dedicated to progressing ideas, organizations, and professionals that drive smarter impact.

Breathe a sigh of relief. Election “week” is over. Now it’s time to get back to your full focus on making this world a better place. And what better time than now to refresh that vision? Tomorrow’s ADVANCE conference seeks to give you new tools and ideas to help move your mission and career forward. 

With a range of speakers and sessions, this year’s conference will help you embrace the new “now” with clarity and renewed vigor.  

This year’s virtual conference will focus on recovery and resiliency in the social impact sector. In addition to a range of speakers, the conference will include virtual breakout sessions for attendees to debrief and reflect.
