Defined by decreased charitable giving and increased community need, the current philanthropic climate poses significant challenges for nonprofits responding to COVID-19, systemic racial inequities, natural disasters and other global crises.

Respond, Recover, Reimagine, Rebuild: Operational Excellence in a New Normal provides network professionals involved or invested in the operational success of their United Way the tools to modernize operations, reduce costs, and increase organizational resilience. Showcasing United Way Worldwide’s suite of shared services, sessions will illuminate how these network-wide resources can generate savings to reinvest back into organizational growth and trace a path for adoption. Attendees will come away from this virtual event empowered to implement our Modern United Way blueprint, and in turn, address our communities’ most urgent needs as one network.
