    A Guide to Choosing a Graduate Program for individuals interested in nonprofit and social impact work

    We all have different life trajectories that led us to be involved in the nonprofit sector.

    What does it take to be resilient while working at a nonprofit?

    When someone says resilience, what comes to your mind? Do you picture a house, standing erect during a storm, fighting against the wind and the rain to remain upright? Do you picture an old tree, battered and swaying in piercing winds but continuing to endure the forces of nature?  While resilience can often be compared to tenacious objects or organisms, it can also refer to people or even whole organizations.
