Welcome to the 21st Century Leadership Symposium

for executive leaders of nonprofit organizations

What We Are About

Nonprofits must compete for every dollar that’s donated with very little help for Senior Executives at the top of the organization. While religious nonprofits have support groups to network with each other to achieve their common good, the same cannot be said for most secular nonprofits locally, regionally, and nationally.

The 21st Century Leadership Symposium is designed for leaders of nonprofit organizations, including Executive Directors, Executive Management, and Development Directors at the top of their nonprofit institutions.

The Symposium will include a monthly cohort of 15 to 18 people that will meet in person for 13 months. Each session will include an educational topic for discussion, time to share and exchange ideas, solve problems, and build alliances with your fellow cohort members in a safe and confidential environment.

Cohorts will be held in-person for nonprofit leaders located in the Southern California area. Executives seeking to attend that reside outside of the Los Angeles area will be able to join via video conferencing.

In addition, each cohort member will receive a one-on-one zoom or in person meeting with one of the leaders of the program each month for individual coaching.

In addition, each member of the cohort will have a one-on-one zoom session with one of the two session leaders each month.
