Pivoting During a Pandemic: How Nonprofit Organizations Are Innovating and Adapting Through a Time of Crisis

Pivoting Pivoting
Each year, the University of Michigan Board Fellowship Program hosts a public forum in the form of a panel discussion with representatives from local nonprofit organizations. This year, the theme of the forum is “Pivoting During a Pandemic: How Nonprofit Organizations Have Innovated and Adapted During a Time of Crisis.” The COVID-19 pandemic has created new realities and challenges while deepening and exposing existing inequities. Within the nonprofit sector these impacts have been felt widely and profoundly. Join us as our panelists discuss questions such as: How has the pandemic impacted their organizations, and how has the board of directors pivoted to adapt to this crisis? What challenges and opportunities have organizations encountered and how did they approach them? How has the organization’s funding model and operational model transformed? How have staff and board members' duties and responsibilities changed since the onset of the pandemic? What has been their most successful pivot? How have funders pivoted to meet community needs and develop new models of collaboration?

The following panelists will participate in the discussion:

Pam Smith, President & CEO of the United Way of Washtenaw County
Darryl L. Johnson, Executive Director of Mentor2Youth
Ebon Wilkins, Board Member for North Star Reach
Tim Carter, Board Member for Ten Thousand Villages of Huron Valley
