Nonprofit 101

6:00 PM - 8:00 PM
Main Library
Community Room 2B. 2nd Floor
As nonprofits, how can we embody the change we want to see and create more effective, accountable, and equitable organizations as we do it? This Nonprofits 101 workshop will be unlike any other you have participated in. We will explore how to infuse the governance, management, and operational practices of our organizations with our values of justice, equity and equality, through the practice of deep democracy. Whether you are a small volunteer-based association or a staffed nonprofit corporation, you will learn how you can incorporate new governance and management strategies that further your values.
Participants will leave the workshop with:
  1. A general understanding of the operations and management of democratic organizations and a vision for how they might embed more democracy in their organization moving forward;
  2. Specific tools and practices to spread power throughout their organization and give impacted people more voice to shape strategic and programmatic decisions;
  3. Resources to select and engage their board of directors, co-workers, and other key-stakeholders in conversation about new organizational structures and practices; and
  4. An understanding of legal issues arising from democratically directed nonprofits.
This workshop is ideal for individuals working in or with social justice organizations of all sizes and at all stages of organizational development. All you need is a desire to either develop or refine self-governance practices in your team, program, group, or organization. Participants should be people with the capacity and energy to start making changes in their organization.
