The largest convening of GSB and HBS alumni, this summit will inspire, educate, and empower alumni to drive high-impact social change as leaders of non-profit boards.

With fresh content and cutting-edge workshops, this is an opportunity for alumni to sharpen their non-profit board leadership skills and connect with a network of peers addressing similar challenges. The event includes:

  • Afternoon Workshops: Choose two workshops listed below for hands-on interactive learning on specific topics relevant for non-profit boards of all sizes
  • Networking Reception and Resource Fair: Featuring non-profits seeking alumni skills for their open board positions. Heavy appetizers and beverages will be served.

Meehan III, MBA ’78, GSB Lecturer in Strategic Management & Kim Starkey Jonker, MBA ’01, GSB Lecturer in Management and President and CEO of King Philanthropies on their book Engine of Impact: Essentials of Strategic Leadership in the Nonprofit Sector.
