Leadership Summit

Experience three days of learning, sharing, reflecting, and networking.

Leadership Agility: Moving Forward with Strength

The Foraker Leadership Summit is highly interactive, deeply engaging, and immediately applicable to your nonprofit work. Join us on April 21, 22, and 23 as we chart our way forward after a tumultuous year. This will be an opportunity to stretch your thinking and discover ways to put new ideas into action. This year we've updated the location of the event to be... everywhere! We're excited to host our first virtual conference, and we hope that means more people than ever can join us.

Each summit has a theme to inspire and grow nonprofit leaders. This year the theme is Leadership Agility: Moving Forward with Strength. 2020 was a year when our eyes and minds opened widely. We saw things we never expected to see and adapted our work in ways we never conceived possible. Putting it in VUCA terms - a concept we explored in previous summits - we met Volatility with Vision, Uncertainty with Understanding, Complexity with Clarity, and Ambiguity with Agility.

The new VUCA reality, along with our insights on how to move forward from 2020 with strength, is the compass for our journey. We're going to explore what that means for us as leaders, for our missions, and for our communities. We will share ideas for digging more deeply into adaptive leadership, creating inclusive workplaces, getting support and fighting burnout, finding new ways to collaborate, and reframing how we talk about our work.
