Nonprofits and other social sector organizations are successful (or not) because of their people. We have overlooked this truth for years, at the expense of the talent within our organizations and the missions we aim to achieve. Leading organizations engaged in social sector capacity building have come together in recent years to discuss how to make talent a bigger priority. Here, we aim to advance that conversation in a three-part series. In part one, co-curated by ProInspire CEO Monisha Kapila and Net Impact CEO Liz Maw, eight different nonprofit leaders shared stories from the field and highlighted real-world results achieved through an emphasis on talent. In part two, Linda Wood of the Evelyn and Walter Haas Jr. Fund joined as guest curator, and shared perspectives from funders who invest in social sector leadership as a core grantmaking strategy. In a third and final phase, we share six examples of how social sector organizations are putting talent development into practice in meaningful ways that will hopefully inspire others to do the same.

And that anxiety is driving their ability to attend to others arou
