As the holidays approach in a divisive election year, we’re bringing themes of community, understanding, and collaboration to the forefront. In “Ask Rita” this month, Mike Bishop addresses workplace challenges during the pandemic, discussing how nonprofits can practice empathy, compassion, and flexibility in our approach toward employees needing extra time off. “Strategic Planning 101” by Jonathan Poisner identifies important elements of relationship-building between a nonprofit’s executive director and board to align with the organizational identity.
This month, “Against the Current” features Rudy Espinoza, the Executive Director of Inclusive Action for the City, whose message to the President is “Cancel the rent.” Rudy also discusses the economics of poverty and better serving our communities. And Eunice Lin Nichols, previously featured in the column, tells stories of intergenerational collaboration through entrepreneurship in “Five Examples of Gen Z Innovators Tackling Social Isolation.”
