Is The Non-Profit Sector Sustainable? Finding A Career in Social Justice
Webinar with: JOANNE CAVE, Canadian Feminist and Rhodes Scholar
When: Thursday, March 13th at 12:00 – 1:00 P.M. (EST) Language: English
About this webinar: How is the non-profit sector changing? What impacts does social entrepreneurship language have on the nature of the non-profit sector? Joanne will answer these questions and speak about the issues you may face when making a career in the non-profit sector. She will mostly speak of the structural issues, such as the difficulties in retaining young talented people, volatile funding situations, barriers to policy advocacy, etc. She will draw from her experience as a Canadian feminist organizer to look at how young Canadian feminists might be thinking about new ways to make change (i.e. through informal networks rather than structured organizations, ad-hoc projects, social media, etc.).
