The Ins and Outs of Nonprofit Leadership Transitions

With Moderator Amanda Ziebell of Propel Nonprofits and Panelists: Alicia Crudup of Kids ‘N Kinship, Tracy McMillan of BroadView Talent Partners, Scott Marquardt of Southwest Initiative Foundation, Melissa Martinez-Sones of Mighty Consulting, and Nonoko Sato of Minnesota Council of Nonprofits

Nonprofit leadership transitions can happen at any time for reasons both planned and not. Recently, we’ve gotten a crash course as many nonprofit executive directors are reaching retirement age, emerging leaders are responding to crises and change in their communities, and the pandemic and economic recovery have affected the sector.

This panel of leaders will share perspectives on ways to prepare for and navigate leadership transitions that focus on the financial health and sustainability of nonprofit organizations.

They’ll talk about how transitions don’t begin the day the job description is posted, and end when the new Executive Director accepts the job. From financial planning, leadership development of staff, and board readiness, to crafting an internal and external communication strategy, and engaging a variety of partners, leadership transitions offer a variety of opportunities for an organization.  

Moving Through the Discomfort: Financial Wellness at Work

With Reema Khrais, host and producer of the Marketplace podcast, “This is Uncomfortable”

How can employers acknowledge and sensitively address the financial hang-ups of their employees as it relates to their work? How do you tactfully approach thorny interpersonal issues in the workplace? What about difficult conversations around salary transparency and raises?

Join Reema Khrais, the host of the Marketplace podcast, “This is Uncomfortable” for a discussion about how to navigate difficult issues in the workplace, including the importance of unlearning ingrained financial behaviors that can interfere with one’s professional life.

Reema will be joined by a financial therapist with expertise in employee-employer relationships.
