United Way of Westchester and Putnam’s Nonprofit Leadership Summit 2020 has been rescheduled and will be held on Monday, October 5, at the Doubletree Hotel in Tarrytown from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event, which is underwritten in part by TD Bank, builds professional excellence in the purpose-driven organizations of Westchester and Putnam counties.
The theme for this year’s Summit is “Preparing for the success of tomorrow begins with embracing equity today.” Our goal is to encourage diversity and inclusion as core values throughout the operations, programs, and leadership of all organizations in the nonprofit sector.
Both breakfast and lunch keynote speakers will focus on this theme, while each workshop will incorporate the theme within the subject matter presented. Starting the day off, Richard Brown, Vice President of Philanthropy at American Express, will talk about the importance of diversifying the current landscape of nonprofit leaders and transforming an organization’s capacity to attract, develop and retain leadership talent. Sean Thomas-Breitfield, co-director of the Building Movement Project and co-author of the Race to Lead Report, will be the lunch keynote speaker. He will address the nonprofit racial leadership gap.
In addition, there will be two breakout sessions that each offer a variety of different workshops to attend.
The Summit attracts a diverse audience of professionals and volunteer leaders in the nonprofit sector – across disciplines, fields and experience levels. Last year over 600 people from over 250 organizations attended the event.
Registration for the event will open on Monday, Aug. 3.
Sponsorships and vendor tables are available.
