Session Description:

With the challenges facing our communities being more complex and more numerous, the nonprofit sector--both service providers and funders--is more needed than ever. But we face our own barriers to effectiveness. Demographics are changing, and the way that we have done things in the past may no longer work. We must examine the philosophies and biases that drive our work, abandon outdated thinking and practices, own the power and influence we have, and collaborate to make the world better. Vu Le is the dude behind, formerly, and Executive Director of Seattle-based nonprofit Rainier Valley Corps, which works to bring more leaders of color into nonprofit work. Prepare to laugh and think.
