If your organization is facing critical strategy or leadership challenges, you know you can’t tackle them alone. Yet nonprofit leadership teams rarely have the time they need to address important management and strategic issues.

Join us for a conversation with Bridgespan specialists about how two upcoming programs—Achieving Strategic Clarity and Investing in Future Leaders—can help. These programs can provide the structure for your team to dig into your important goals, create a shared vision, and make critical decisions—together.

This webinar will cover:
  • Program basics: timing, what you’ll learn in each program, available scholarships, and how to talk to funders about the programs
  • Platform demo: what the online lessons and pre-work look like, and the structure of team summits
  • Q&A with coaches: is this program right for you?
Sign up to learn more about the programs.
