Kind Boss: Build Strength in Collaboration 

(January 11, 2024 webinar) Being a Kind Boss isn’t about playing nice or not hurting feelings. Kindness is “having, showing or proceeding from benevolence.” Nice is a feeling. Kindness is an action. Kindness is collaborating with others to make the working world less awful. In this webinar, author and creative agency owner Dawn Crawford will share entertaining stories of leadership gone wrong and tips and inspiration to put kindness into practice.

Making Your Nonprofit’s Case with Storytelling 

(August 30, 2022 webinar) Storytelling is the most powerful tool we have as changemakers. By sharing our authentic personal stories and those of the community we serve (with permission, of course), we can stand out as we stand up for our mission. We attract and inspire an audience that is ready to roll up their sleeves and help us make shifts happen at our nonprofit organization. In this session, we will explore the dynamics of storytelling and create each member of your team’s individual 'elevator pitch' – also known as a verbal business card.

Nonprofits as Social Change Agents: Advocacy for Racial & Economic Justice 

(November 4, 2021 presentation) This session will offer a fact-based, nonpartisan framing of the conditions that perpetuate extreme economic inequality in the United States, using language and concepts that are accessible for everyone.  In order to become conduits for social change, nonprofits must be trauma informed and rooted in an understanding of social movements. Organizations of any size can orient services, outreach, and advocacy efforts in ways that foster healing relationships among individuals and communities, while developing skills and capacity for civic engagement. This session offers tangible ways nonprofits can shift their operations and resources, however limited, toward these goals.
