On Board Nonprofit Board Service Conference




OnBoardFrom the C-suite to the nonprofit board room, complex social and environmental problems will only be solved by intentional, connected leaders working with advanced knowledge and tools. The Rustandy Center for Social Sector Innovation’s On Board conference ensures that nonprofit leaders and their boards are equipped with the knowledge and connections to do their best work.

Too many organizations that are focused on solving social and environmental problems lack resources and talent. Meanwhile, those working in the for-profit sector often seek meaningful opportunities to give back. The Rustandy Center’s On Board conferences—in Chicago, Hong Kong, New York, and San Francisco—bring both sides together for a day of learning and connecting.
