State of the Sector

This event is a unique opportunity for nonprofit leaders, foundation executives and staff, stakeholders, and sector supporters to connect and reflect.

It’s an understatement to say that 2020 was a year like no other – a national reckoning with racism, COVID-19 health crisis and economic fallout, devastating fires, and a divisive election season. Our field has led our state through these crises with hope, innovation, and commitment to a better future. Register for this exciting virtual event to honor our work in 2020 and look to 2021 and beyond.

We’ll be joined by several Colorado nonprofit leaders and Jane Wei-Skillern for an exciting dialogue about proven and innovative strategies to meet this moment of profound change and opportunity. Dr. Wei-Skillern is the Author and Founder of The New Network Leader. Click “speakers” to learn more about Jane Wei-Skillern.

Join us for:

  • Celebration and storytelling about our sectors work and impact in 2020
  • Facilitated discussions with change makers in our field
  • Exploration of new ways to advance the public good
