20% nonprofit staff are burned out according to a Nonprofit Quarterly survey. That’s 1 out of 5. Our sector simply cannot afford that. Given the urgent need for our services and impact, the cost of burn out on this scale should be intolerable. But what can be done? As leaders of nonprofits you set the tone and shape the culture of your organizations. And despite what you may think, opportunities to prevent burnout abound! How would you like to decrease turnover and increase morale? Want to create a better world inside your organization as well as in your community? Come learn about innovative policies to shape an organizational culture that will sustain you and your staff without compromising your impact. You’ll hear some provocative ideas and explore promising practices emerging in our sector. You’ll have an opportunity to explore the best fits for your organization, and identify steps you can take to lead your organization away from the edge of burnout.
