Three Keynotes.

Kick off the 2023 conference with a keynote by Transformative Culture Consultant Monica O. Montgomery on September 19. The next day, September 20, we’ll be joined by a panel of nonprofit professionals who will help us think through how to bring ideas from Monica’s keynote to life in our own organizations. Finally, the fabulous Donna Murray-Brown is back by popular demand (after keynoting the 2022 Collaborative Conference) on September 27 for a virtual fireside chat-style keynote. Learn more here!

Each day of the conference will feature workshops in the following workshop tracks:
