Mission: The Hidden Superpower Behind Building Trust in Nonprofit Organizations
About the Webinar
Organizations continue to navigate changes in the ways they carry out work. The shift to remote and hybrid work environments has altered how we view trust in the workplace. Our research demonstrates the importance of building trust at work as an essential asset to break down silos, foster collaboration, and drive engagement.

Join us — along with guest speaker Ivan Canada, Executive Director for North Carolina for Community & Justice (NCCJ) — as we discuss how leaders of nonprofit organizations can leverage a unique superpower to build trust with all constituencies: a shared belief in their mission.
