NGen Speaks is a podcast series featuring emerging nonprofit leaders grappling with complex, sometimes controversial issues. Each leader brings an authentic voice to the conversation, based on personal views and lived experience. These leaders were selected for the 2017 NGen Fellows program by American Express and Independent Sector, but the views expressed do not necessarily represent those of either organization.
