A New Way Forward: Reimagining the Nonprofit Workspace Virtual Engagement Series
August 20, 2020 @ 1:30 pm - 3:00 pmFree
Presented by: Council of Michigan Foundations, Michigan Nonprofit Association, Michigan Community Resources and Co.act Detroit
This engaging and interactive multi-part series will provide guidance to Michigan’s nonprofits as they consider re-entry into the workplace. Sessions will be grounded in equity as we balance the exploration of legal, HR and financial requirements as well as ways to strengthen team culture, redefine the work space and realign to mission.
Join us as we explore how in these critical times nonprofit boards can demonstrate exceptional leadership, serve as a valued partner and support team culture. Together with a panel of nonprofit executives we’ll discuss the role of boards in preparing for the long-term implications of COVID-19 and how to engage in their organization’s racial justice work while considering the larger question of how governance structures can promote equity, or reinforce inequity. We’ll conclude with legal expertise on critical board procedures relevant to today’s nonprofit challenges, including virtual meetings and related bylaws. Nonprofit board members, prospective board members and nonprofit staff are invited to this timely conversation, with ample time for Q&A.
