Transforming Challenges into Opportunities with Sara Gass from Upstart
Wednesday, July 8, 2:00 – 3:30p.m.
The Coronavirus pandemic has forced all of the organizations in the Jewish nonprofit sector to change the way we work and meet our constituents’ needs. Some have adapted existing programs to new circumstances; others have jumped into entirely new initiatives better suited to the moment while still fulfilling their mission. Sarah Gass, UpStart’s Director of National Projects, will use case studies directly from the field to inspire you and will introduce an entrepreneurial framework to help you explore how you too can turn challenges into opportunities.
