This one-day workshop is designed to give young professionals the foundational skills they need in order to be successful in their roles. In a sector where workplace demands are constantly changing, you need to know how to respond to your organization’s current needs as well as anticipate the challenges that tomorrow may bring. Those who do that well are often identified as the emerging leaders in their organizations. This highly participatory workshop will give you the tools you need to become more effective in your present role and advance your capacity for career growth.

Who Should Attend

  • Young professionals who are new to the workforce
  • Young professionals with less than five years’ experience working in the nonprofit sector

  • Engage as an individual contributor, team member, and leader in your workplace

Participants are responsible for making and paying for their own hotel/lodging arrangements. We have found that usually offers comparable or even lower rates than we are able to negotiate. We recommend attendees look for hotels in the Dupont Circle neighborhood. Check out some suggestions for convenient hotels.
