New Generation of Nonprofit Leaders
Dec 1 2009, 8:38 PM EST | Post edited: Dec 11 2009, 1:17 PM EST
Research suggests that the younger generation is placing a strong emphasis on the 'interdependence philosophy' while the older generation may focus on strategic partnerships. What are the different attitudes and beliefs of the new generation of nonprofit leaders regarding race and collaboration?

Hi, Natalia. Now that I've read your post, I think this is some of what I was trying to get at in item number 1 of my post on January 5th. It's not so much about individual or collective but about the interdependence of all. Therefore the idea of partnership and strategy and the relationship to power is completely transformed. Do you find this valuable?

I recently learned about an initiative at Stanford University called the Social-M (for "social movement") Challenge.

While it does not seek to include race as part of the conversation (which is noteworthy), I thought that this set of videos from the kick-off day was telling, particularly in terms of how the conversation for social change is taught and framed for and by the next generation.

This particular competition is organized around the theme of "sustainability:"

For comparison, I am including a link to Van Jones' "Green for All," which intentionally brings race and social justice into the dialogue on "green:"

Do you find this valuable?

Hi Julius,

Thanks for your comment! I just checked out the videos for the Social-M Challenge and it certainly seems like an innovative approach!
