In Season 2, Episode 9, I spoke with the Executive Directors of MindWorks Collaborative and Unscripted to learn about how they created their innovative programs from scratch. Both of these organizations work in very niche, unique cause areas, so they didn't have the luxury of looking at other organizations' programs to help guide their planning process. I asked Martrice and Emma for their advice on creating new programs at a nonprofit organization.
In Season 2, Episode 7, I spoke with the top directors of Safe Haven Family Shelter (a family homeless shelter) and Carpenter's Square (a faith-based community center) to find out how they became the CEO and Executive Director of their organizations. They told me about their professional journeys and gave advice for young nonprofit professionals who aspire to become CEOs of their own organizations.
In this episode of the Nonprofit Jenni Show podcast, I talked about some inadvertent legal mistakes I've seen pop up in the nonprofit world lately. I asked Rachel Schaffer Lawson of Schaffer Law Firm to come back on the show and answer some questions about employee vs. contractor issues, legal requirements for fundraising, and programs which may not belong in your nonprofit organization.
