On March 6, Hitachi America, Ltd. along with the Pace University Helene and Grant Wilson Center for Social Entrepreneurship will present a free, full morning education program for nonprofit professionals and people interested in entering the field. The title of this year’s program is “Adapting to a Changing Landscape: Nonprofit Operations, Policy Changes and Giving and Careers.” The session will explore the dramatic shifts that are taking in place within the nonprofit sector, the changing landscape for fundraisers, the ever-increasing competencies needed to succeed professionally and changes in federal policy and legislation that will impact the way nonprofits operate and raise funds.
A series of short speaker presentations followed by a panel discussion and Q&A format, the program will feature representatives from government, healthcare, education, professional fundraising and social enterprises. Speakers will discuss the challenges and opportunities in their sector, how they are adapting within their role/organization and highlight skills and experiences they see as essential to careers and leadership in their field.
