New report on social sector leadership and success – How do you measure up as a 21st century leader?

October 3, 2013

I was honored to be part of Emerging Practitioners in Philanthropy (EPIP) new report and video series that takes a look at how the social sector must adapt to succeed in meeting 21st century challenges and opportunities.


EPIP and La Piana Consulting’s new project, Doing Good in the 21st Century, addresses issues such as how the social sector can address leadership development and succession, cross-sector collaboration, new technology, diversity and equity, the next gen, and social entrepreneurship.

Via workshop sessions and interviews conducted this past April, EPIP and Council on Foundation conference participants were engaged to comment on emerging trends and surface examples of individuals, organizations and networks proving their ability to succeed in the 21st Century. The video vignettes are the beginning of a conversation EPIP hopes to continue and take to the next level.  Peruse the report and videoslearn more about how rising nonprofit professionals measure up as a 21st Century leaders, and join the dialogue.

Find the report here and see the videos below:

New Reality Which organizations, individuals, and networks will succeed in the new reality, and why?

Sector Blur There are new opportunities for cross-sector collaboration. The nonprofit sector is increasing not the only locus for doing good. In the face of huge challenges, we need all hands on deck.

Technology Technology has changed the way the sector works. But how, and what does it mean?

Philanthropy’s Role Philanthropy works. But does it work as well as it could?

Diversity and Power There is power in diversity. But are those in power recognizing this power and leveraging it?

Business Models Social change business model diversification is needed.

Generational Shift It’s not a leadership “hand-off”. It’s finding a new path forward- together.
