Nashville is growing and changing, but with that growth comes new challenges facing residents and visitors alike. In the nonprofit sector, are we solving those problems as they appear, or are we disrupting the systems that created those problems in the first place? By thinking big, we can “look upstream” and create change on a wider scale. But where do young professionals fit in when it can be challenging to disrupt the status quo? Join us for a conversation about systems change, social entrepreneurship, and how young professionals can fit into the big picture in Nashville's changing landscape.

Don't miss this opportunity to grab a drink with CNM's Young Nonprofit Professionals and learn from speaker Scott Schumann of the new social enterprise Tipping Futures. Scott created Tipping Futures when he noticed a huge need in Nashville: when placing people in affordable housing, nonprofits do not have a reliable source of furniture. Scott and his team are working to solve this issue by opening Nashville’s first and only furniture bank. In looking upstream, Scott is truly walking the walk.

At this YNP session, learn more about the work of Tipping Futures and about big-picture ideas of social entrepreneurship in the 21st century. Your $10 registration includes beer, wine, and snacks.
