The Dilemmas of Demographics: Trends and Opportunities for SoCal Nonprofits

Unlikely Allies in Times of Change
Leading an organization means navigating and initiating change, often in the face of divergent perspectives. Changing demographics, shifting political forces, introducing policies or systems that reshape your organization’s culture – change is a constant. Change is also a valuable tool for creating more stability, strengthening your impact and engaging stakeholders in new ways. Learn from leaders who have made allies of adversaries to drive change in their organizations and communities. Hear about strategies and tools you can use to help steady the course and make the process a positive and inclusive opportunity for transformation.

Equity in Los Angeles
The LA economy would be nearly $380 billion stronger if racial gaps in income and employment were closed. In this exploration of findings from the 2017 Equity Profile of the Los Angeles Region, learn how your organization can promote equity-focused strategies and policies that grow good jobs, build capabilities, remove barriers, and expand opportunities for the people and places being left behind.
