Hunger. Poverty. Inequality. Education and mis-education. Social, political and environmental justice. Professional and economic advancement. Political and religious freedom. Immigration reform. Animal welfare. Human rights. Access to healthcare. Global warming. What do these movements share in common?

The demands being placed on the nation’s social sector are accelerating, yet its people practices continue to lag in the face of mounting pressure. More than ever before, impact-focused nonprofits and associations are recognizing that without keen focus on and investment in smart talent and culture systems, their missions may not be realized. It is out of this recognition that the Nonprofit Talent & Culture Summit was born.

The 2017 Nonprofit Talent & Culture Summit is a transformational three-day event where forward-thinking nonprofit and association leaders exchange fresh ideas and collaborate on new ways to advance their missions and goals through talent.

Praise from 2016 Attendees

Very engaging and high energy. Loved the candid nature of the remarks and responses to questions. Kudos to all the presenters!

I have had the privilege of going to the several conferences over the past 5 years (SHRM and insidengo). This one far exceeded my expectations and excited me in a way that the others haven't in a while.

I can't wait to discuss (what we learned) with our Board and implement this with our organization.
