Training Series

CVNL ACADEMY Leadership Training Series programs address topics vital to the well being of nonprofits. 

Coming soon!

Board Governance Series, 3 parts (Marin and Napa)

Nonprofit board members enrich and govern an organization with their personal expertise, connections, and passion for the cause—and yet, they don’t always come to the job with experience in things like nonprofit fundraising or governance. CVNL knows what a strong, smart board looks like—and how critical it is for the health of an organization. Our two-part series on board governance helps help organizations diagnose their boards’ needs and equip their members with the right resources to take their leadership to the next level. 

Mindfulness Series, three sessions in partnership with Pepperdine University

Mindfulness is often viewed as either a touchy-feely fad or valuable management tool that can lift an entire workplace. A new comprehensive analysis of mindfulness research suggests the latter — that injecting a corporate culture of mindfulness not only improves focus, but the ability to manage stress and how employees work together. CVNL is partnering with Pepperdine University to support research around nonprofit leadership and benefits of mindfulness. 

Equity Series, four sessions in partnership with E3: Education, Excellence, Equity and the Berrett-Koehler Foundation

This powerful journey of reflection and action will allow for meaningful dialogue on real issues, the development of strong bonds, and opportunities to have a systemic impact. You’ll walk away with an action plan, theoretical frameworks, and stronger teams to implement equity in your own institutions.
