Gorton has again partnered with Kellogg School’s Center for Nonprofit Management at Northwestern University and is presenting a series of workshops leading to a Nonprofit Resource Development Certificate. The keynote session will kick off our workshop series.

Join Elizabeth Schwan-Rosenwald as she discusses the unique challenges faced by non-profits in leadership and management.  Executive Directors of small nonprofits often wear two, or sometimes multiple hats.  In particular, leaders of small nonprofits must find a way to be both visionary and practical leaders.  They must drive constantly towards their mission while working towards budget, staffing and programming. Lost in the middle of these dueling responsibilities is staff management.  A strong nonprofit leader must help staff see the bigger picture and manage staff as they develop into professional assets for the organization and the sector-at large.


This program is generously funded by The Grainger Foundation. The Greater Good was created to support the growth and professional development of the Lake County Nonprofit ecosystem. The intention is to nurture and expand these organizations through relevant speakers series, workshops, and individual professional coaching and networking events.
