Through paying people equitably, offering flexibility, supporting personal and professional growth, and providing leadership opportunities, nonprofits have the ability to add much more value to their workforce in addition to raises.

Join us for a trendsetting dialogue on inclusive voting models, and learn about innovative strategies to overcome barriers to civic engagement.

Leave with a toolkit that will equip you to educate voters and drive voter participation.
