Leading From Within Hosts Rosetta Thurman Talk on ‘6 Ways to Rock Your Nonprofit World’

Leading From Within recently sponsored Rosetta Thurman, a nationally recognized author, speaker and coach, who delivered poignant tips on how to excel in the nonprofit sector.

Leading From Within advances the common good by investing in people dedicated to making their communities a better place. To date, LFW programs have supported 200 nonprofit and community leaders through its Emerging Leaders, Courage to Lead and Katherine Harvey Fellows programs.

Thurman facilitated LFW’s most recent event, “Six Ways to Rock Your Nonprofit World,” sharing her engaging message, inspiring a new generation of leaders to change the nonprofit world.

Based on the concepts in Rosetta’s first book, How to Become a Nonprofit Rockstar, this interactive and lively presentation gave participants six ways to accelerate their careers.

“Rosetta openly shared experiences from her own career path and delivered pragmatic tips that attendees can implement immediately,” said Carrie Randolph, executive director of Leading From Within. “This honest and empowered mindset is exactly what we are cultivating among Santa Barbara’s nonprofit leaders.”

Participants included representatives from CALM, the Community Environmental Council, Direct Relief, Easy Lift Transportation, the Environmental Defense Center, Girls Inc. of Carpinteria, Just Communities, Legal Aid, the Mental Wellness Center, the Orfalea Foundation, the Santa Barbara Bicycle Coalition, the Santa Barbara Foundation, the Scholarship Foundation of Santa Barbara and many others.

Noozhawk Asks: What’s Your Question?

Welcome to Noozhawk Asks, a new feature in which you ask the questions, you help decide what Noozhawk investigates, and you work with us to find the answers.

Here’s how it works: You share your questions with us in the nearby box. In some cases, we may work with you to find the answers. In others, we may ask you to vote on your top choices to help us narrow the scope. And we’ll be regularly asking you for your feedback on a specific issue or topic.

We also expect to work together with the reader who asked the winning questions to find the answer together. Noozhawk’s objective is to come at questions from a place of curiosity and openness, and we believe a transparent collaboration is the key to achieve it.

The results of our investigation will be published here in this Noozhawk Asks section. Once or twice a month, we plan to do a review of what was asked and answered.

Thanks for asking!
