mentors who develop generous leaders

May 18, 2009

Andy Ho reports in a blog post titled, “Seasons of Change: A Leadership Development Discussion Series” about leadership development for emerging philanthropic leaders. Several insights were shared by Peggy Saika (Executive Director of Asian Americans/Pacific Islanders in Philanthropy) and Glen O’Gilvie (CEO of the Center for Nonprofit Advancement) ::
