Thinking about going to grad school?
Are you considering graduate school but hesitant to take the plunge? Perhaps you are debating whether you really need an advanced degree for a career in the nonprofit sector. This session will address why an advanced degree is worth considering. It will also touch upon types of advanced degrees, graduate institutions, additional considerations when selecting what to study, and alternatives to graduate school.
Presented by: Susanne Revutsky is Founder and Principal of Butterfly Careers, a boutique career consultancy that helps nonprofit professionals find meaningful work. Her 15+ years of nonprofit and philanthropy work include stints as a program officer and grantmaker at Northern California Grantamkers, the Forum of Regional Associations of Grantmakers, and the Association of Baltimore Area Grantmakers as well as consulting experience with Harder+Company Community Research.
