October 5 & 6
Noon – 7 p.m. & 7:45 a.m. – 4:30 p.m.
For two packed days, the Greater Pittsburgh Nonprofit Partnership (GPNP) will host critical conversations, nationally acclaimed keynote speakers, solutions-based breakout sessions and networking and social events at its highly-anticipated biennial Summit.
Some 1,500 nonprofit professionals, entrepreneurs, investors, elected officials, and community leaders will gather to discuss equity issues facing our region. Representing 450-plus civic-minded organizations from 12 counties, the GPNP produces the transformative event to bring together the public, private and nonprofit sectors.
New this year at the nationally-recognized Summit are events organized around three tracks — equity in health, economics and education — as well as scholarships for nonprofits based in the Hill District and rural counties.
Expect provocative dialogue, dynamic voices, practical professional development tools, and inspired ideas for forging innovative, cross-sector partnerships. Breakout sessions will cover everything from big data and accessibility in the arts to redistricting reform and income disparities.
The opening keynote address, “Creating Space for Creativity & Innovation,” will be delivered by Mickey McManus of MAYA Design, who is a pioneer in the fields of collaborative innovation, pervasive computing, human-centered design and education. Don’t miss the closing keynote by Dr. Barry Kerzin, personal physician to the 14th Dalai Lama.
