01:37 Bridgette Barbara Byrne; More Than Series
Bridget Barbara Byrne talks about her More Thank series on Diversity & Inclusion. Bridgette Barbera-Byrne hopes that through telling her story of what she overcame, it becomes someone else’s survival guide. WHEN IT COMES TO THE WORLD OF DIVERSITY, INCLUSION, AND ACCEPTANCE, WE CAN ALWAYS BE DOING MORE THAN WE ARE. This concept is what drives the vision behind the More Than training. Owner and creator, Bridgette Barbera-Byrne states: “I imagine a world where someone’s dimensions of diversity do not interfere with the successes they achieve in life. Where it does not dictate the privileges they are fortunate to encounter. A world where the struggles one encounters are not predetermined by the dimensions of diversity that they were born into. I imagine a world where people view each other’s differences as an open door to a world of new perspectives.“ More Than trainings focuses on topics in the diversity and inclusion realm. They will provide participants with tools to assist them in navigating and leading others through these fragile and potentially controversial topics. More Than trainings are customizable to every organization's needs and are suitable training tools for every industry. Doesn’t every leader want a team that is mindfully inclusive and can do More Than exceed the expectations of their customer?

01:34 Laurie Herrick; Rainmaker Consulting
Laurie has worked in the not-for-profit sector for over twenty years. She has served in numerous professional and volunteer roles including development director, grassroots fundraiser, executive director, board member, and board chair for a variety of not for profit organizations throughout her career. Laurie currently provides consulting in fundraising, community organizing, board development, executive coaching, and strategic planning. She feels that fundraising and building a Culture of Philanthropy is sacred transformative work. Not only is it meaningful, but it can alter the trajectory of an organization. Laurie started Rainmaker Consulting Group LLC in 2003 because she saw that many organizations were lacking buy-in for fund development. Many had a mindset of scarcity. They didn’t think that they could raise enough money, that they didn’t “know anyone with money”, that their board was disengaged, and many of their top executives were not embracing fund development. There was a substantial gap between what nonprofit organizations needed and what they were achieving to fulfill their missions. What was lacking was a Culture of Philanthropy. In the last 10 years, Herrick has focused her work on helping organizational leaders build a comprehensive, agency-wide, Culture of Philanthropy. Each of these teams of leaders together created implementation plans and built strategies to make positive culture change stick. The lessons and best practices gained through her consulting and teaching has led to her upcoming book, Choose Abundance: An Organizational Guide to Build a Culture of Philanthropy.
