Vu Le, Executive Director and Writer, Rainier Valley Corps and Nonprofit with Balls
Brought to you by the Nonprofit Association of Oregon (NAO)

As our society's issues become more complex, and new solutions are proposed by government and even for-profits, the nonprofit sector is at a crossroad. What has been our role, and what is our role moving forward? Can we work across sectors? How do we move from talking about stuff, to actually doing stuff? In partnership with the NAO, we are thrilled to have Vu Le, Executive Director of Seattle-based leadership-building nonprofit Rainier Valley Corps, and writer behind humor blog nonprofitwithballs.com, delve into these and other questions. Using his trademark brand of humor, Vu will touch on the definition of social good, the urgency of the nonprofit sector owning its power, the importance of cross-sector collaboration, and the habits and mindsets we must all reconsider to effectively handle the challenges facing our communities.
