Nonprofit Resilience: Coffee and Resilience Series | Session 3

Today, especially, as the pandemic serves up a meal of uncertainty, ambiguity, complexity, and volatility, social sector leaders are called to invoke resilience as critical to organizational survival. At their best, resilient nonprofits respond to disruptions as breakthrough moments rather than breakdowns, identifying and pursuing new opportunities to learn, evolve, and, ultimately, better serve their communities.

Resilience During Crisis: Coffee and Resilience Series | Session 1

What does resilience look like personally, organizationally, and in communities as we navigate through this crisis? Recently, philanthropy and other sectors have begun to think about how we can reimagine our systems post-COVID-19. How can we use this disruption to transform how we live and work, reorganize institutions, and create more equitable communities?

Love Not Fear: Coffee and Resilience Series | Session 2

While we are responding to the urgency of community challenges, we need to think about how philanthropic investments today can sow the seeds for creating equitable systems down the road. This session is about centering love, healing, culture and building people power to not only meet this critical moment, but also to ensure we have a “just recovery” and an equitable future we want to see.
