We are not alone. With more investors, businesses, government agencies and new nonprofits focused on doing good, lines are blurring, movements are happening, and our world is benefiting. As social change accelerates, the nonprofit public benefit sector needs to make sure it continues to lead. Competition is stiff, and qualities like integrity, collaboration, agility and transparency are more important than ever. Join AFP Golden Gate and Development Executives Roundtable (DER) for an afternoon of tough questions, inspiring dialog, and problem solving with speakers from the nonprofit, corporate, and government sectors as we explore the possibilities and benefits of working together to accelerate social change.

Change is constant in our communities and organizations. In the Bay Area, the pressure to change--to disrupt--is relentless. As we attempt change, we look to those who have done it successfully for the lessons that may help us realize our need for change. The panelists are leaders who have guided significant organization change in response to a variety of internal and external needs. How did they reach their decisions? What helped them make the change? What were the obstacles? The panel session will be followed by Q&A.
