New England Emerging Leaders Event

Relevance: The Critical Role of Community Voice for Nonprofits

Thursday, February 21, 2019

About the Event

Join the Learning by Giving Foundation (LxG) for an in-depth conversation about the critical influence of the community on nonprofit work. This event is the first in a four-part series of events for emerging leaders in New England who want to learn how to make their giving impactful, and network with other like-minded young professionals.

At the event LxG will present on “Relevance” from the RISE Framework for Social Change, a framework developed by the Social Impact Lab at Northeastern University which focuses on the nonprofit hallmarks of Relevance, Impact, Sustainability, and Excellence in Management and Operations. LxG’s Executive Director will then moderate a conversation with leading local nonprofit executives on how they ensure their program is relevant to the communities they serve.

This event is free to enter but all attendees are strongly encouraged to support LxG and the nonprofits we work with a donation of $25. Drinks and food will be provided. If you have any questions, please contact
