No matter what our role is in an organization or community, it’s important to remind ourselves that we always have the opportunity to make an impact. This is true today in our nonprofit work, just as it has been for influential figures in history. About a week ago, a Rosa Parks statue was unveiled in the U.S. Capitol’s Statuary Hall to commemorate her impact. At the ceremony, President Obama remarked, "Rosa Parks held no elected office.  She possessed no fortune; lived her life far from the formal seats of power.  And yet today, she takes her rightful place among those who’ve shaped this nation’s course.”

Following the example set by Rosa Parks, we can find ways to rise up while empowering those around us every day.  Regardless of job title or position, anyone can serve as a leader and build up communities to champion social change.

During our upcoming Nonprofit Rockstar Teleseminar on March 11, you’ll learn to recognize valuable assets and discover the endless possibilities for you to serve as a leader toward social good. Covering concepts from his book Everyone Leads: Building Leadership from the Community Up, author and CEO of Public Allies Paul Schmitz will be joining our call. Paul will sharing lessons learned from his work empowering over 4,400 young leaders across the country.

Register now for this Nonprofit Rockstar Teleseminar and learn how you can step up in your own organization and make a greater impact - no matter what your title is.

This teleseminar will be recorded, so if you can’t make it this time, you will still receive the replay afterwards!
