One of the biggest challenges facing nonprofits today is their dearth of strong leaders – a problem that’s only going to get worse as the sector expands and baby boom executives retire. Over the next decade nonprofits will need to find some 640,000 new executives, nearly two and a half times the number currently employed. – Thomas J. Tierney, Stanford Social Innovation Review, Summer 2006
Addressing the needs and concerns of marginalized, subordinated, or underrepresented clients and causes has long required the resourcefulness of individuals working in concert. What tools have been successful in cultivating, training and retaining leaders, from within these communities and among other concerned people? What characteristics define social justice leaders? Does the answer vary for leaders from different generations? What leadership style or styles will prove effective for the future? What role will new technologies play in movements for social change and how might leaders tap into these technologies?
This 1/2 day Symposium will gather several generations of social justice leaders and innovators to consider questions related to the social justice sector leadership challenge, and to inform and inspire leaders of tomorrow.
