This year marks a big milestone in ProInspire’s story, as we celebrate 10 years of supporting leaders at all levels and strengthening organizations in the social sector. Founder and CEO Monisha Kapila launched ProInspire with the ProInspire Fellowship in 2009, to address structural barriers to working in the nonprofit sector and create pathways for emerging, diverse leaders.
Our scope has since expanded beyond the pipeline, and our work with almost 500 social sector organizations and over 3,000 leaders at all levels has given us a deeper understanding of the leadership opportunities and challenges facing our sector. As we reflect on where we’ve been and consider what lies ahead, we recognize that leadership and equity are key to the systems change needed to maximize social impact. We’re excited to use this moment to pivot our organization toward this reality with an updated theory of change, strategies, and branding; to offer learning opportunities and a Summit on leadership, equity, and the future of social impact work; and to celebrate all we’ve accomplished together.
