“As a growing organization, CNM plays an instrumental role in providing critical tools and education opportunities for Turnip Green Creative Reuse that have contributed to a tremendous increase in both the quality and quantity of our community impact. Additionally, with the challenges of running a non-profit through a global pandemic, we are full of gratitude for CNM providing meaningful continued support to keep Nashville’s non-profit ecosystem strong.”

“Leadership can be a very lonely place. And when you’re not able to be vulnerable without a certain level of repercussions, it can be very challenging. And so to listen to other experiences that sounded like mine allowed me a level of awareness that I was right where I needed to be, when I needed to be, and doing what I was supposed to do. I want to just emphasize that it was just an amazing experience for me. It not only provided me safety and simplicity, it provided me with a support system that I didn’t even know that I needed.”

KARA JAMES, Co-Founder and Executive Director of The F.I.N.D. Design
