Join your colleagues for a discussion on challenges to CEO succession planning, how to incorporate diversity and inclusion into your search, and best practices for a smooth transition.
As staff and trustees in the philanthropic sector, it is critical to understand the resources and strategies available as you develop succession plans to prepare for the future. The knowledge and resources gained during this seminar can help ensure that your foundation, grantees, and the nonprofits you support as trustees achieve successful leadership transitions.
Whether your organization is currently planning for a transition, recently hired a new executive, or may not experience these changes for years to come – this is the perfect opportunity to discuss challenges and opportunities while connecting with fellow CNJG members who are going through various stages of the succession planning process.
At this program, you’ll hear from Koya Leadership Partners, a leading executive search firm. Senior Vice President of Culture, Inclusion and Strategic Advising Miecha Ranea Forbes and Vice President of Executive Search Melissa Madzel will discuss how to align strategy with mission, practical tips and examples for the planning process, and the roles of staff during planning, interim, and on-boarding periods.
Following this presentation, executive leaders and trustees who recently went through the succession planning process will share insights and experiences, such as incorporating diversity and inclusion into the search, working with current staff, and goals for onboarding.
Panelists will include:
Michael Unger, Board of Trustees, Council of New Jersey Grantmakers
Kyle Ruffin, Governing Board, Community Foundation of South Jersey
Andy Fraizer, Executive Director, Community Foundation of South Jersey
Cynthia Evans, Interim CEO, The Geraldine R. Dodge Foundation
