Webinars on Walnut

Webinars are a great educational tool for the workplace. You can learn from experts and industry leaders from across the country without ever having to leave the comfort of your office chair. But what’s the one drawback to a webinar? We are often alone at our desks, learning from a distant voice with little chance to actively engage with the speaker or our peers.

The Nonprofit Partnership wants to fix that.

Our new series, Webinars on Walnut, creates an opportunity for nonprofit professionals to come together, enjoy a coffee, learn from experts around the country, and share perspectives and questions with those around the table.

On a regular basis, we will screen webinars from industry authorities like Firespring, CharityHowTo, and 4Good for you to enjoy with other Erie-area professionals. After each webinar is over, attendees will participate in a moderated discussion regarding the topics that were explored and any questions that may remain.
