About Your Session Leader

Lisa Brown Alexander
Founder & CEO
Nonprofit HR

Driven to serve the often-overlooked people management needs for the social impact sector, Lisa set out to build a market where one didn’t exist. She founded Nonprofit HR in 2000, and it is now the leading talent management firm in the country that works exclusively with the nonprofit sector.

Listed as one of the nation’s fastest-growing firms by Inc. 5000, Nonprofit HR has grown under Lisa’s leadership, and the work of her firm has proven that better talent practices can play an integral role in nonprofit success. Over the course of her career, Lisa has presented to hundreds of organizations, staff and leadership teams, covering all things talent management for the social sector.

A leader within the Greater Washington, D.C. Metropolitan region and the national nonprofit sector, author, international speaker, and key industry influencer, Lisa actively contributes to the strength of the sector through her advisory roles with Fund the People and Equity in the Center initiatives. She frequently addresses national conferences and events and has authored scores of articles in nonprofit and HR publications on human resources issues. Lisa also serves on the board of directors of the D.C. Chamber of Commerce and the Prince George’s Cultural Arts Foundation and the Upper Marlboro Arts Council. 

In addition to Nonprofit HR, Lisa is the Co-Owner of Wellspring Manor & Spa, an upscale retreat destination and full-service bed and breakfast located in suburban Maryland. Her unique perspective and experience as a serial entrepreneur, CEO and board member have informed the Executive Alliance for Social Impact learning content. As a participant in this exclusive experience, you will gain from Lisa’s insight navigating these critical issues, connect in a unique leadership community and strengthen your skills as a leader of impact.
