A Conversation Across Generations: The Changing Nonprofit Landscape
Nonprofit organizations and higher education institutions are among the largest employers in Massachusetts, employing 14 percent of the total workforce. Yet trends predict a shortage of qualified leadership in the coming years. More than half of Executive Directors in the U.S., and more than a few board members, will be leaving their jobs within the next fiver years. This challenge will offer significant opportunities to aspiring nonprofit and social sector leaders. The nonprofit world is on the precedence of major changes in its leadership and management structures.  To successfully navigate the changing nonprofit landscape, nonprofits need to acknowledge and discuss the implications of the generational and demographic shifts impacting the workforce.
