Posted in: Alumni Career Services- Jun 22, 2014 Comments Off on Leadership Lessons from Nepal to DC: How to Start and Grow A Non Profit

Monday, June 23, 2014, 12:30 – 1:30pm

“How do you even start a non profit?”

When Claire Naylor and Claire Charamnac (both F’11) launched Women LEAD, a leadership development organization for young women in Nepal, this was the question they encountered most frequently. In three years, they have built an organization that has empowered more than 600 young women to become leaders in their schools, communities and nation. Claire Charamnac, US Executive Director, has focused on growing Women LEAD through fundraising, communications and outreach. Claire Naylor, Nepal Executive Director, has built Women LEAD on the ground, leading everything from program and partnerships development to operations, finance and governance in the midst of political instability, worsening infrastructure and 12-hour power cuts.

The webinar will share the co-founders’ leadership lessons learned from building a non profit, specifically:

-Challenges in building a board;
-Working cross culturally;
-Marketing and Communications for a startup non profit.
