How to Save the World in Six (not so easy) Steps: Bringing Out the Best in Nonprofits

We all depend heavily on nonprofits—for education, health care, social services, spiritual fulfillment, and much more. But unfortunately, too many nonprofits let us down, hobbled by inefficiency, infighting, and inertia. So what should we do? In his new book, How to Save the World in Six (Not So Easy) Steps: Bringing Out the Best in Nonprofits, David Schizer exposes the root causes of these problems and explains how to solve them.

Complimentary copies of the book will be provided by the Ranieri Fund for Nonprofit Education at Columbia Law School.

Registration for this event is required. Lunch will be provided. If you have any severe dietary restrictions please email so that we may accommodate.

Qualifies for 1.5 CPD credits.
