NP2020 is an initiative to give emerging leaders a voice in the nonprofit sector.
According to emerging leaders at the NP2020 Conference, in 2007, the leadership deficit is here now. Emerging leaders are ready to be mentored, they believe there are structural challenges to their nonprofit careers, and feel the sector needs more diversity. NP2020 participants believe funders need to support more operating costs to address these issues in the sector. Overall, the consensus was conversations about these issues need to continue. Read more about their discussions in NP2020: Issues and Answers from the Next Generation.
NP2020.org is a site to continue the conversations started at the conference, and to move from discussing the issues to developing solutions. We encourage you to utilize the pages below to network with your peers; discuss solutions to the leadership deficit; and share your personal experiences on how you are driving solutions in the sector and your communities.
