It’s hard to believe that the 2016 Nonprofit Talent & Culture Summit is just a few weeks away.

The Summit is the only nonprofit-focused talent and culture conference in the world. This year, nonprofit and association leaders from across the country are joining us in Washington D.C. April 17th – 19th to explore talent and culture strategies that will position them to maximize the potential of their people and increase the impact of their organizations. If you’ve not yet registered, it’s not too late. Sign up here before registration closes Thursday, April 7th, to reserve your spot.

At this year’s Summit, attendees will have the exclusive opportunity to collaborate with innovative, changemaking leaders from organizations like LinkedIn, United Way Worldwide, YMCA of the USA, National 4-H Council, (and more) around the topics of talent acquisition, talent development, culture & retention, executive leadership, and more.

This year’s agenda includes five keynotes, six special impact sessions and 30+ concurrent breakout sessions across four educational tracks, so attendees can fully customize their Summit experience and will come away with the actionable ideas and the tools they need to cultivate, engage and sustain game-changing talent.

There is truly something for every nonprofit and association leader at the 2016 Nonprofit Talent & Culture Summit. Here are three of the sessions we are really looking forward to this year:

1. We are Unicorns: Why the Nonprofit Sector Must Invest in Talent

Monday, April 18th 9:00 – 10:30 am

Nonprofit professionals are the most critical element in our sector’s ability to effect change. And yet so many of our employment practices, inherited from the for-profit sector, are archaic, ineffective, and leave organizations in an uncompetitive position.

It is time we as a sector examine long-held practices in hiring and retention, as well as increase investment in our professionals. Vu Lee, executive director of Rainier Valley Corps and writer for Nonprofit With Balls and Blue Avocado will bring his own unique personality to this keynote, filled with his trademark humor and references to unicorns and pop culture. This session will challenge, provoke, and inspire you to shatter the status quo with your organization’s people practices.

2. Nonprofit Employment Practices Survey Report Release

Monday, April 18th, 7:45 – 8:45 am

Since 2003, Nonprofit HR has been the leader in studying employment trends in the nonprofit sector. Our annual Nonprofit Employment Practices Survey is cited frequently by outlets from the New York Times to Forbes, and countless nonprofit professionals rely on the data we produce to understand how the sector is changing. This year, we expanded the impact of our survey through a partnership with GuideStar, the leader in nonprofit data.

Be among the very first to see the results of our 2016 Nonprofit Employment Practices Survey when we unveil it live at the 2016 Nonprofit Talent & Culture Summit during a special morning impact session.

3. Executive-Only Reception and Discussion: Building an Intentional Culture: What CEOs Must Know

Monday, April 18th, 6:30-8:30 pm

Why do some social change efforts achieve transformational results while others only make incremental progress? At our Executive-only reception and discussion Community Wealth Partners’ President Sara Brenner and Nonprofit HR’s Lisa Brown Morton will explore this question and lead an intimate discussion about what it takes to build an intentional change-making culture at your nonprofit. Panelists include Global Giving CEO Mari Kuraishi and Year Up COO John Bradley.

Are you ready to network with other nonprofit executives and CEOs and learn specific culture-building practices that align internal values and behaviors with external impact? Seating is limited so if you’d like to attend this special Executive-only reception please RSVP here. This reception is also open to those who are not attending the summit free of charge.

For those seeking continuing education credits, The 2016 Nonprofit Talent & Culture Summit has been pre-approved by the HR Certification Institute for 18.5 HRCI credits and by the Society for Human Resource Management for 17.5 SHRM professional development credits.
