Linda Myers Adopt a Native Elder

What emerges in your mind when it comes to Native Americans in our country?

Today’s guest has been working with the Navajo Native American community for 34 years. Her name is Linda Myers. You may have seen her and her work highlighted by CNN, where she was selected as a “CNN Hero”. She started the Program in the 1980’s during the turbulent years of the Hopi-Navajo land dispute which ultimately resulted in 10,000 Navajos being relocated from their traditional homelands. During those times there were many Elders facing severe hardships and deprivations. When Linda became aware of this desperate situation it was food more than anything else that these people needed for their survival. With the assistance of Grace Smith Yellowhammer, Linda began to help. And the Adopt a Native Elder nonprofit began.

Kate Hayes Diversity on Nonprofit Boards

Diversity on Nonprofit Boards – According to a survey by BoardSource, a research and support organization for nonprofit boards, 25% of boards are all white, and only 20% of board members are people of color. Yet, most nonprofit leaders and board chairs desire to have boards that are more diverse–not only racially, but in terms of gender, socioeconomic status, age, and experience. In order to reconcile this desire with reality, creating intentional plans for diversifying nonprofit boards is essential. Further, we know that boards–and teams–that are more diverse actually perform better, so how can nonprofits take intentional steps to diversify their boards?

  

Kate Hayes is my guest today on the Nonprofit Leadership Podcast. Kate is the Direct of Impact for Echoing Green (https://www.echoinggreen.org), a social impact fund that identifies tomorrow’s transformational leaders today.

Peter Greer

Hope: There are few other words more important than hope. It can make the difference between overcoming or being overcome, moving forward or shrinking back, believing life can be better or falling into despair. Hope changes things.

The problem with hope is that it is very difficult to measure on a graph. Therefore, hope rarely makes it onto an annual report or data analysis sheet. Yet, it is a critical ingredient to the success of many nonprofits. My guest today is PeterGreer, President and CEO of HOPE International a global, faith-based, micro-enterprise development organization serving throughout Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.
