What: A post-election, free Executive Director speak-easy event


When: Thursday, November 5, 4:30 - 6 pm PST


Where: Zoom


RSVP: by Oct 30 to receive your Speak-Easy gift to your door


Hurry, space is limited to 25.

The idea: To gather and just speak-easy. Be real. Bond and banter with other EDs who are probably as isolated, stressed and ready for the election to be over as you are. EDs shoulder enormous personal and societal responsibilities. And we’re humans. So let’s get together and surface that humanity in all its sparkle and dust! 

The plan: To create a fun, confidential and uplifting space for connecting with others who’ve faced similar responsibilities, pressures, dark clouds and successes this year. So grab a beverage and come share, whether you want to celebrate, seek advice, caucus, problem solve, laugh, cry or just listen.


The goal: To set the stage for connection and foster a feeling of community as we navigate the rest of 2020. 

Community of Practice Cohorts for Nonprofit Leaders 

Ampersand believes in the power of collective efforts, and learning is no exception. Community of Practice Cohorts are an opportunity to learn together about pressing issues, focused on a particular topic over a period of 6 virtual sessions.


Cohorts are geared to white leaders* of nonprofit organizations interested in centering anti-racism. With consideration of separate leadership roles and challenges, Cohorts are built to connect Executive Directors/CEOs and Board members in their own, separate affinity groups. Together, we will engage in guided, collaborative learning in alignment with the charge that white people have been given by BIPOC communities to take responsibility for moving from an embrace of white supremacy towards a place where we can be useful partners for justice.

You and your cohort will be provided with structured time to connect & build camaraderie that we know is missing in the nonprofit leadership arena. 

COST: $50/session or $250 paid in full upfront. No one will be excluded due to inability to pay.
