Including community members in decisions about an evaluation—such as measures of success, culturally appropriate ways to collect data, and meaning and implications of findings—can improve the community’s capacity to effectively manage and control change.

Learn what this 2014 Nonprofit Management Institute attendee took away from their experience:

"Based on the Nonprofit Management Institute design thinking session, I funded our table’s idea: an online competition for the beautification of Jerusalem. Nonprofit New Spirit is now working with neighborhood groups to pilot a plan to repurpose rooftops as gardens and recreational spaces. It is my hope that by next year at this time, we will see rooftops in Jerusalem that are green and are buzzing with social activity, all because of a session at last year’s Nonprofit Management Institute!"

Save big when you register by July 31! Visit www.ssireview.org/npinstitute.

To celebrate the 10th annual Nonprofit Management Institute, the theme of this year’s conference is building resiliency.

The concept of resiliency has captured the imagination of growing numbers of people in the field of social innovation because it helps answer pressing questions such as these: Why do some societies bounce back so quickly after a disaster while others don’t? Why do some organizations grow and innovate when others falter? Why are some people able to push forward even in the face of adversity?

This year’s Nonprofit Management Institute—Building Resiliency: Yourself, Your Organization, Your Society—will explore these and similar questions, examining the role that resiliency plays at the personal, organizational, and social levels.

Yourself: Our communities, organizations, and companies need leaders who are resilient, who can stay the course of social change even after being knocked down, and who can sustain their work and themselves over the long haul. You will learn the characteristics and skills that define a resilient leader, and the ways that you can develop those characteristics and skills yourself and in members of your team.

Your Organization: What are the qualities and attributes of organizations that can scale up and have a positive social impact have in common? Many of those qualities can be grouped under the term resilience. At this year’s Nonprofit Management Institute you will learn how to turn your organization and its culture into one that is resilient, adaptable, and equipped to “bounce forward.”

Your Society: Resilience is an important factor that helps explain why some communities weather crises and emerge stronger than before and why others do not. Based upon tenets that are grounded in research, experts will explore and share with you the key attributes that resilient societies share, and explain how you and your organization can help to build resiliency into all parts of society.

Register soon! The Institute's 10-year celebration is sure to sell out. www.ssireview.org/npinstitute
