TECHNOLOGISTS AND CONSULTANTS will find opportunities to put your expertise to social good, as well as the potential for lasting relationships (be they paid or volunteer) with leading organizations in your community.

The Digital Nonprofit Conference

Roundhouse Community Center

Tickets at https://eventchain.io/event-details/156 Vancouver's Online Strategy Conference for Nonprofit Leaders The Digital Nonprofit is Vancouver’s premier conference for nonprofit leaders engaged in digital transformation. The event is specifically designed to help nonprofits and charities learn about the models and tools needed to succeed. We will also feature practical case studies from nonprofit leaders who will share the tactics they’re using to truly engage online with their members. KEYNOTE PRESENTERS ##Vu Le – Envisioning the Future Charitable Sector Given everything happening in the world, the nonprofit/charitable sector continues to play an urgent and critical role. But we face many challenges to fulfilling our full potential. What does the ideal sector look like? How will we get there? What are sacred cows we must let go? Join Vu for a no-BS presentation filled with pictures of baby animals. ##Beth Kanter – The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Linking Self-Care and Wellbeing to Organizational Impact This keynote is about how and why it is important to treat self-care and a culture of well-being as an organizational strategy and cultural norm. When self-care initiatives are treated as “extras” instead of being built right into the fabric of an organization’s culture or leadership does not model the behavior, they often fall flat. Beth will share the latest thinking on self-care and well-being in the nonprofit workplace based on the presenter's book “The Happy Healthy Nonprofit: Strategies for Impact without Burnout.” Going beyond a narrow focus on physical health and wellness, she will share examples and insights from nonprofits that have created and implemented a culture of well-being in the workplaces that supports results.
