Our topic: How Can Young Nonprofit Professionals Become Leaders?
Wednesday, May 5, at noon U.S. Eastern time
The Chronicle of Philanthropy is hosting its first live Twitter discussion, using the tag #ynpchat, to talk about leadership issues young people face in the nonprofit world. The exchange will take place on Wednesday, May 5, at noon U.S. Eastern time.
The Young Nonprofit Professionals Twitter chat is the brainchild of Allison Jones and Rosetta Thurman. The duo decided to use the online tool to answer questions frequently asked by their peers and colleagues.
Both Ms. Jones and Ms. Thurman recently appeared at the Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy and Young Nonprofit Professionals Network conferences, where the issue of leadership for young professionals was a key theme.
Please join us on Wednesday, May 5, at noon U.S. Eastern time.
