CEO Conversations: Leading Well with Day 7, Inc.

February 20, 2020, 8:00 – 9:30 a.m.

The New Year has come, and with it often come resolutions, personally and professionally, to take better care of our health. Be it mentally, physically, or emotionally, it can be hard to know where to begin to care for yourself, much less the needs of others. So many in the nonprofit sector experience burnout and are seeking better balance for their teams.

Join CNM’s first CEO Conversations of the year with organizational health experts Day 7, Inc. to learn how you can create a culture of wellness in your organization.
