Join us for this extraordinary opportunity to be educated, inspired and empowered to build high impact nonprofit boards.

During this multi-day virtual summit, gain insights from an ecosystem of Harvard Business School alumni, dedicated nonprofit board members, and national thought-leaders on pressing issues of nonprofit boards. Four major themes will be addressed—one per day—and each day will feature three sessions that will focus on different elements of that theme.

Thursday, May 6th: Adapting to a Changing Landscape
Tuesday, May 11th: Equity and Inclusion in Action
Thursday, May 13th: Partnering for Systemic Change

Participants can pick and choose which sessions to attend, and many sessions will be recorded for registrants unable to attend live.

Featured speakers include:
Lynda Applegate, Baker Foundation Professor, Harvard Business School
Jim Bildner, CEO, Draper Richards Kaplan Foundation
Margaret Hall, CEO and Co-Founder, GreenLight Fund
Lisa Hamilton, President and CEO, Annie E. Casey Foundation
Darren Walker, President, Ford Foundation

Also, Wednesdays, May 5th and 12th, are opportunities for deeper exploration and enrichment. Registrants will be able to attend limited access interactive workshops, structured peer networking, nonprofit board matching opportunities, and more.

This Coast-to-Coast Virtual Conference is presented by the Community Partners programs of the HBS Association of Boston (, HBS Association of Northern California ( and HBS Club of New York (, in collaboration with the Harvard Business School Social Enterprise Initiative.
