Continued Support Learning Series

Presented by

As we continue to navigate uncertain times, busy nonprofit leaders need support. You need easily accessible, relevant information to guide your organization in a resilient way.

To meet those needs, CNM has designed the Continued Support Learning Series, a collection of twenty-three micro-learning modules developed in direct response to the needs identified from our nonprofit community members. The topics in this series address the most pressing challenges of nonprofit leaders while providing space for peer learning, expert advice, and timely information sharing.

The Continued Support Learning Series builds on CNM’s original Crisis Support Learning Series, with adjustments based on participant feedback, added topics to support equity in the nonprofit sector, and updated content tailored to the needs of the present moment.

Each session consists of ninety-minutes of virtual, peer-to-peer learning with guidance from CNM’s experts. As part of our responsiveness to the uncertain times we are currently experiencing, CNM is offering the Continued Support Learning Series for members at a nominal cost and an affordable rate for non-members in an effort to bring as many people together that seats will allow.  Log into your CNM account to access member pricing.
