TSNE MissionWorks invites you to an evening with millennials of color in nonprofit leadership who will speak to their trials and triumphs of rising to the top.

As millennials of color begin to take the helm of nonprofit leadership, many are discovering that they are inheriting difficult jobs at unprepared and under-resourced organizations. In this panel, millennial nonprofit executives of color will discuss their experiences as leaders. There will be a moderator-led discussion for panelists to share lessons learned for those on similar journeys and for questions from the audience.

This event is free of cost and includes complimentary food, beverages, and opportunities for networking. The event is wheelchair accessible and real-time captioning will be available. A livestream for the event is also available for those who register, but are unable to attend in person. This event centers the experiences of millennials of color and is open to everyone.
