In Solve, Not Serve: What Other Nonprofit Management Books Won’t Tell You, author Kelly E. Griffin proposes a long-overdue paradigm shift within the social sector. Her insights are gleaned from decades of experience as a nonprofit strategist and advisor, extensive research and analysis, and perspectives from dozens of inspirational and effective nonprofit leaders, funders, and independent thinkers. Kelly, who will be joining us for an honest in-person conversation, conducted dozens of interviews and did extensive desk research for the book and will share some very surprising findings. She will also share 5 practicable tips from the book that attendees can use in their workplace.
