Sponsored by diversity consulting firm, people3, the free virtual event welcomed close to 100 attendees and represented a major step for YLC as the organization seeks to create awareness and support systemic change throughout the Middle Tennessee non-profit community. The panel discussion was part of YLC’s Impact Series, which provides continuing education enrichment for alumni and community partners. Participants left the event with insight, awareness and actionable steps to help them increase opportunity, equity and engagement of diverse voices throughout non-profit organizations and the community.
When asked why this conversation is important for YLC, panel moderator, Joyce Searcy said “the corporate and nonprofit leaders who participated in this important panel discussion are helping to prepare YLC students and alumni for the hill they must climb as board members within the Nashville community. My hope is that as board leaders, they dare to ask the necessary questions, challenge the status quo, and create the perfect environment to drive change.”

City Lights 2020 | Family & Children’s Service March 28, 2020 – 6:30PM
We love our nonprofit friends at Family & Children’s Service! In fact, they hosted our most recent Opening Class Session for Young Leaders Council! They are hosting a spring event, City Lights 2020 – honoring Hunter Atkins & John Steele.
The party will feature a 70s Disco theme with live music by legendary funk band Delicious, dancing, and catering by Johnny Haffner. John Steele and Hunter Atkins will be honored for their community service and support of FCS. It’s a cocktail supper (open buffet; no tables). This makes it easy for partygoers to mingle all night. 70s costumes are encouraged (but not required), and there will be fun surprises throughout the evening.
The event benefits Family & Children’s Service, which serves more than 50,000 of our community’s most vulnerable children and families each year.
If you or your business would like to sponsor the event, please contact Beth Hall at 615.340.9718
This conversation will be led by Michael Woodnorth of Woodnorth Advisory. We will define social enterprise and discuss its benefits for nonprofits through examples and real-world experience. We will also explore how social enterprise fits into (and enhances) the traditional nonprofit structure and the questions you should ask to help decide if social enterprise is right for your nonprofit.
