About the course
In an era with a rapidly growing amount of non-profit organizations, it is important for individuals both inside and outside the field to have a greater level of understanding on the non-profit sector of business. Our 'Non-Profit Governance and Leadership' workshop examines how non-profit organizations develop their mission, theory of change, program model, strategic plan, fundraising plans, as well as their methods for progress measurement and continuous performance improvement. This course familiarizes participants with the knowledge and skills of non-profit leadership. Split up into two sections, the ‘knowledge’ section will introduce core concepts and trends in the evolving non-profit field, while the ‘skills’ section aims to introduce specific skill sets important to non-profit management and leadership.
