About the Workshop


There may come a point in our career when we decide we can be more impactful as an organizational manager than as a direct practitioner, but transitioning to nonprofit executive can seem daunting. How do we make the leap? The skills necessary to run a nonprofit are very different than those needed to provide direct services, but they can be learned.

In this workshop, Dina Carreras-Menzie, LMSW, Chief Program Officer at Abilities First, will introduce you to the theory, concepts, and skills necessary to move into organizational leadership. Participants will learn the difference between being a Manager and being a Leader. Skills will be introduced to learn the basics of leadership styles, management styles, project management, change management, and business and finance.
