Finding Hope in the Midst of the COVID-19 Crisis

What a year last week has been, right? The world has undergone a change that most people have never seen in their lifetime!

In times like these, it can be difficult to see anything positive. That’s why Rob has dedicated this episode to talking with nonprofit leaders from around the country about what they are doing to keep moving forward in their local communities and how they are staying hopeful in such dark times. Mark Kennedy Shriver, Beth Kanter, David Rivel, Kate Rubalcava, and Carly Fiorina join Rob today with a plethora of diverse nonprofit leadership experience between them. Mark is the Senior Vice President of US Programs and Advocacy for Save the Children. Beth is an internationally-acclaimed master trainer, blogger, speaker, and best-selling author. David is the CEO of the Jewish Board of Family and Children’s Services, New York City’s largest social service organization. Kate is the CEO of the Utah Nonprofits Association and serves on the board of the National Council of Nonprofits. Carly is a former presidential candidate and former CEO of Hewlett Packard, eventually starting her own nonprofit, the Unlocking Potential Foundation.

Across the country, these nonprofit leaders are seeing uncertainty in the communities that they are working to support. There’s a lot of fear and anxiety right now, and it’s going to take a lot of creativity to respond to these problems to make sure that no one gets left in the wake of the ongoing spread of COVID-19. More than ever, this is a time to band together and help those who don’t have the resources to support themselves. Whatever crisis you are facing during this time of uncertainty, hopefully, you can take something from this incredible group of leaders and use it to guide you through these unprecedented times.
