Transitions in Nonprofit Leadership: Are You Ready to Make a Move? (Mazarine Treyz)

July 2022

Are you pondering your place in the philanthropic sector? The COVID-19 pandemic has changed the world and its effects are being felt across all industries. In episode #166 of Your Path to Nonprofit Leadership, multifaceted career coach Mazarine Treyz discusses some factors that nonprofit leaders should keep in mind as they prepare for the next normal. She advocates for such things as self-care, equal pay and the need to find fulfillment in your career choices, regardless of the transitions ahead. We are in a cultural transition where individuals, organizations and society can look forward to shaping their futures rather than just grinding through the present.

"Returning to an office needs to be part of a systematic reconsideration of what exactly the office brings to the organization and the individual."
