Report: “Ready to Lead? Next Generation Leaders Speak Out”Ready to Lead 2008 (pdf) – (WaPo, 3/3 | Meyer press release) Post: “Even as baby boomers retire, nonprofit groups stand to lose ambitious young employees who feel underpaid, overwhelmed by long hours and demanding responsibilities, and frustrated by a lack of career progression” … “Sector agnosticism” – We don’t have to be in the nonprofit sector to do good. It’s the largest national survey of emerging nonprofit leaders to date. Produced by the Meyer Foundation in partnership with CompassPoint Nonprofit Services, The Annie E. Casey Foundation and Idealist.org. [On a related note, the term “nonprofit” itself is pretty unappealing. Why not “Social Change” sector?]
