What are the rewards and challenges local non-profit leaders face operating in a global environment? How is this different from their prior work that may have been in other industries or more locally focused? In this panel we explore global non-profits as they fit within the Institute's mission of facilitating the exchange of knowledge and leading the way in executive education and lifelong learning.
Panelists will address the challenges and benefits of being part of a global organization in this economy, including overall mission, cost effectiveness, and the ability to react and respond to opportunities.
There will be four panelists and a moderator for this program. Our moderator is Celeste Wilson, EMBA, former Executive Director of the Arts & Business Council. Our panelists are Sylvia Ferrell-Jones, CEO of YWCA, Robert Minetti, Director of Development for MGH, Kathy Taylor, VP of ElderHostel/Road Scholar, and Ed Wilson, CEO of Earthwatch International,
