IMPACT: Innovation + Philanthropy

IMPACT: Innovation + Philanthropy Forum 2017

Thursday, October 26, 8:15-11:30AM

George Washington Masonic Memorial, 101 Callahan Drive, Alexandria, VA 

IMPACT: Innovation + Philanthropy is a forum that convenes board, business, City, community, philanthropic, and nonprofit leaders to discuss innovations in philanthropy and strategies for building the capacity of nonprofit organizations and individuals to make a lasting impact in the community. The 2017 IMPACT forum on Thursday, October 26 will feature nonprofit thought leader and author Beth Kanter for a conversation about how nonprofit and board leaders can avoid burnout and encourage a culture of wellbeing in the nonprofit workplace.  Nonprofits are driven to do more, more, more, often with fewer and fewer resources; there comes a breaking point where passion dwindles under the weight of pressure, and the mission can suffer as a result. Beth will be interviewed by Graham McLaughlin, Managing Director, Corporate Responsibility at The Advisory Board Company

Subsequent breakout sessions will include:
