POP Talks

Power of Partnership Talks (POPTalks) focus on key challenges involved in forming and maintaining high impact coalitions.  This unique model combines a brief content presentation with peer-to-peer learning shaped around a specific topic for each session. Possible topics include:

  • Power imbalances in coalitions
  • Collaborative decision-making
  • Moving from information sharing to coordinated action
  • Collaboration with an equity and justice commitment

CNE plays a significant convener role for our community and keeps the nonprofit and service sector front and center. They elevate our work and provide concrete tools to improve capacity and effectiveness.

CNE is excited to launch 7 Actionable Principles for a Strong Social Sector!

Building on themes from 10 discussion sessions with 67 community members, and several leading national frameworks for nonprofit health and impact, the 7 Actionable Principles aim to create a shared understanding of what makes a healthy nonprofit and build a supportive learning community of nonprofits and funders.

We encourage you to check out the site and you can find a recording of our launch town hall here.
