Making Long-term Leadership Transitions Work: Managing Nonprofit Founder Transitions
Mar 16, 2021 10:00 AM Pacific / 1:00 PM Eastern

Nonprofit boards and CEOs almost universally agree – succession planning and executive transitions are critical to get right. This is especially true when a departing leader is a founder or has been in the role for a long time.

Join us for a dive into the research on what makes a founder transition successful, and hear from leaders at two organizations that have recently undergone this process. We will also talk about the critical role that racial equity can play in a transition process.

In this webinar, you’ll:
  • Learn about the most successful models for founder transitions
  • Get practical tips for driving a founder transition
  • Hear best practices (and pitfalls to avoid!) from leaders who have been through these transitions
We are proud to welcome these nonprofit leaders as guest panelists, to share their expertise and experiences:
  • Ali Knight, President and CEO of FLY (Fresh Lifelines for Youth)
  • Claas Ehlers, CEO of Family Promise
  • Christa Gannon, Founder of FLY
