Nonprofits face several existential crises:
- How to attract the best talent given that business is now perceived as a more trustworthy change agent in today’s world
- How to ensure the mission is beholden to the beneficiaries and employees, not simply the board members
- How to eliminate burnout
- How to overcome the scarcity mindset that plagues leaders
- How to ensure nonprofits are healthy, equitable workplaces
Join Be Social Change and our partners for a half-day virtual event all about improving and fortifying nonprofit practices. Hear from leaders and visionaries in the field of non-profit hiring, culture, leadership, and collaboration.
Join a single event of this virtual half-day Nonprofit Mini Summit or the full day’s schedule.
- Join staffing experts to hear what they are looking for, how to differentiate your application materials, the best nonprofit job search strategies, and what to look for in the NGOs you apply to.
Conversation #2: How to Create a Healthy Nonprofit Culture (2:15 – 3:15 pm ET)
- Gain best practices, insights, and skills to ensure your organization is building a great and healthy culture. Too many employees cite burnout, poor management practices, and microaggressions or institutional biases as the reason they leave. Be a part of changing that equation for your organization, which will lead to greater impact and success.
Facilitated Networking for the Nonprofit Space: (3:30 – 4:30 pm ET)
- Connect with NGO professionals to learn more about the sector, find points of collaboration, and gain inspiration and recognition for the incredible work that is being done!

Director of Communications, GiveDirectly
In 2017, he was nominated for an Emmy for his work on Full Frontal with Samantha Bee’s Hurricane Maria Relief Special.
He graduated from Harvard College with a BA in Sociology.
His journey in social impact began when he was 26 years old and was diagnosed with cancer. After a two-year battle, he and a group of other survivors founded an incredible nonprofit called Imerman Angels, a Chicago-based nonprofit that matches cancer patients with survivors of the very same diagnosis as a support and mentor figure during the most difficult time of people’s lives.
In trying to reach out to more cancer survivors, Jonny and his co-founders tried all different types of nonprofit promotion. After trial-and-error and then learning what worked, they harnessed their findings into a new social enterprise called CLOZTALK that has the power to transform nonprofit marketing. CLOZTALK partners with incredible nonprofits to create beautiful, simple, black and white t-shirts featuring their logos. When you purchase your favorite nonprofit’s t-shirt, CLOZTALK donates 20% of net profits back to its 230+ and growing list of vetted nonprofits and you become more than a donor – you become a walking advocate for the mission most important to you. Jonny envisions a world where every person is representing the social causes closest to their heart.
