Network

Network

The charitable sector is vast, diverse, and filled with incredible potential. And the best way to unleash that potential is to connect people to each other. The Independent Sector network is the vital meeting ground for the best minds in the charitable sector. This is where changemakers share and learn from each other – and where experiences and ideas converge into solutions that can transform our communities and the common good.

Exposure

Exposure

Great work should be celebrated. Critical challenges should be shared. Opportunities should be grasped. Independent Sector serves as a vibrant hub of information for the charitable sector. We are proud to amplify the voices of our members and showcase the powerful work being accomplished by organizations of every mission and size.

Leadership Development

Leadership Development

Leadership manifests itself in many forms. In groups, communities, and organizations, strong leadership is the backbone of the charitable sector. Independent Sector is committed to helping leaders strengthen their skills and hone their craft. We take a holistic approach to leadership development by exploring the trends that are impacting our sector now – and the ones that will change the way we work in the future – and creating programming designed to support a continuum of leadership at every level.
