The ProInspire Summit

An opportunity to gather with leaders at all levels across the social sector to share our collective wisdom and experiences as we envision the future we hope to create

We believe that an equitable and just society is in our reach — but creating it will require all of us to expand our thinking on leadership, equity, and the future of social impact work. Now is the time to look ahead and understand the assets we already have, what opportunities we need to create, and how we want to approach social impact work over the next 10 years.

The ProInspire Summit is an opportunity to gather with leaders at all levels across the social sector to share our collective wisdom and experiences as we envision the future we hope to create. Featuring three energizing speakers and using the unconference format to co-create our agenda, this day-long convening will provide space for participants to learn from and inspire each other as we pose questions, challenge assumptions and existing models, and share ideas about leadership, equity, and the future of social impact work.

Our goal is for you to leave with a clearer understanding of your role in realizing our shared vision, greater confidence to take action, and stronger connections to build your network and maximize your impact. Bring your energy, your openness, and your ideas for discussion topics, and we look forward to seeing you on June 13th!
