Engaging Millennials as Board Members and Donors

Wednesday, November 20 Register Now

For nearly a decade, the conversations about generations in the workplace and our nonprofit landscape have focused on Millennials vs. Baby Boomers. We have the opportunity to see the world from the perspective of Millennials and embrace the leadership qualities they can bring to our nonprofits: embracing technology and a faster pace of change and mission-focused work. These young professionals are community leaders who are hungry for experience and to make a difference. What is the best way to leverage the strengths of Millennials and transition them as board members and donors? During this webinar, JGA and guest Stefanie Krievins, an executive coach serving organizations through change management initiatives, will help you understand the Millennial experience and what it could mean for your organization.

These are the community leaders who are loyal, have critical thinking skills, and are able to make major and planned gifts to nonprofits. What is the best way to leverage the strengths of the GenXers and transition them into board leadership? During this webinar, JGA and guest Stefanie Krievins – an executive coach serving her fellow GenXers, will help you understand the Gen X experience and what it could mean for your organization.
