philanthrOK: Retrospect is a talk show for nonprofit and social entrepreneurs offering the reflections of notable philanthropists and community leaders from some of their most critical moments in leadership, fundraising, and mission-driven work. What would they have done differently? What do they wish they had known then that they know now? Join host Lindsay Jordan, founder and CEO of Write On Fundraising, as we learn from the experts and grow our collective impact!
Write On Fundraising, in conjunction with Tulsa Tech, is proud to present the opening talk in this year's Retrospect series: "What I Wish I Knew About Moving from Corporate Philanthropy to the Nonprofit Sector" with special guest Alison Anthony, former president of the Williams Foundation and current president and CEO of the Tulsa Area United Way.
Alison has a breadth of experience in both nonprofit and corporate leadership development - how has it served her in her new role? Did she experience any skills or culture gaps in moving from one sector to another? Are nonprofits really "just businesses that don't pay taxes?" What is her advice for other corporate leaders considering a future in philanthropy? Join us as we explore these and other questions with one of Tulsa's most recognized leaders on February 19 at 9 a.m. in the Pocahontas Greadington Learning & Creativity Center at Central Library in downtown Tulsa.
