Thank you for participating the 2014 conference! We had a wonderful day filled with insights and enjoyment.
SHIFT: LEARNING TO THRIVE IN A COMPLEX WORLD
In this era of increasingly complex challenges, changing community demographics and relentless pace of change, can nonprofits find meaningful and enduring solutions?
To thrive in the future, we will need to shift:
Shift our thinking
Every year at the Washington State Nonprofit Conference, over 500 nonprofit and civil society leaders come together to celebrate successes and tackle tough issues. This year we will examine what shifts we are experiencing and how we can adapt to our rapidly changing world. We will gather together thought leaders with diverse perspectives who will challenge our thinking and lead us to solutions for the future.
Inspiring Keynote Speaker: Connie Rice
