Leading in the Age of Trump and #BlackLivesMatter


December 7, 2016 
1:00 pm - 4:00 pm 


The passionate debates won’t end with the election.  The personal and political are increasingly intertwined at work – and staff tell us it’s often stressful to deal with this in the office. Forward-thinking leaders face an opportunity to channel the emotional energy raised by current events into a productive force for positive change. Following a long, contentious election season, an increase in bigoted rhetoric in the mainstream and the emergence of new social movements, nonprofit leaders are faced with new challenges:

(1) How to lead in this environment in alignment with their mission;
(2) How to create clear goals for addressing divisive rhetoric in the day-to-day environment, and;
(3) How to facilitate important conversations and make decisions in an inclusive way that respects diversity of opinion.
This session is designed to support nonprofit board members and senior leadership in proactively defining a process, policies and specific practices to enable productive, respectful conversations to occur, internally and with external stakeholders. Participants will receive tips, tools, personal insight and the opportunity to share with each other. This workshop will be relevant to both those who attended October's session on "Leading in the Age of Trump" as well as those who missed it.

Participants will come away with:

  • A clearer understanding of their personal and organizational strengths and opportunities in the current socio-political environment
  • Specific tips on how to make effective decisions and engage in difficult conversations in an inclusive, goal-oriented way
  • A concrete action plan for next steps
