The Harvard Business School Associations of Boston, New York, and Northern California have assembled this multi-day virtual summit where you can gain insights from an ecosystem of Harvard Business School alumni, dedicated nonprofit board members, and national thought-leaders on pressing issues facing nonprofit boards.  Four major themes will be addressed—one per day—and each day will feature three sessions led by leaders who will focus on different elements of that theme.
  • Tuesday, May 4th:  Rethinking Governance
  • Thursday, May 6th:  Adapting to a Changing Landscape
  • Tuesday, May 11th: Equity and Inclusion in Action
  • Thursday, May 13th:  Partnering for Systemic Change
Participants can pick and choose which sessions to attend, and many sessions will be recorded for registrants unable to attend live.

Featured speakers include:

  • Lynda Applegate, Baker Foundation Professor, Harvard Business School
  • Jim Bildner, CEO, Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation
  • Margaret Hall, CEO and Co-founder, GreenLight Fund
  • Lisa Hamilton, President and CEO, Annie E. Casey Foundation
  • Darren Walker, President, Ford Foundation
  • Deborah Winshel, Global Head of Social Impact, BlackRock
Also, Wednesdays, May 5th and 12th, are opportunities for deeper exploration and enrichment.  Registrants will be able to attend limited access interactive workshops, structured peer networking, nonprofit board matching opportunities, and more.
