Description

A corporate business operations and strategy leader, a non-profit CEO, and a board advisor walk into a bar… or, in this case, they come together on a panel for Me2We. In this session we will discuss how we can connect non-profits and for-profits for a more diverse and inclusive world, benefiting companies, non-profits, and individuals. Each speaker will share their perspective and personal tips, and we will have plenty of time for Q&A and experience sharing among participants. Join us!
