Aligning Your Nonprofit’s Values, Culture, and Way Forward

Feb 16, 2017, 1:30 pm - 3:00 pm

How a nonprofit interprets its mission has lasting impacts on its stakeholders, from clients to volunteers to staff.  It is important for nonprofits to interpret their missions with input from their stakeholders, in order to ensure that everyone understands their role within the organization and clients feel confident that services are framed around their needs.  But different stakeholders have different interests and concerns. What are some steps nonprofits can take when seeking to share their mission with these different stakeholder groups?  Join us for a webinar on February 16, 2017 as Stephanie Arcella and Bix Gabriel of Take Two Services Inc. share how to align your nonprofit’s value, culture, and plans for the future.
