Join us for our 2020 VIRTUAL Berkshire Nonprofit Awards* celebration and two-day summit on nonprofit sustainability. We’ll miss the bacon and eggs and seeing you all in person, but are excited to leverage this new virtual format to do things we weren’t able to before, such as hearing in person from the Berkshire Nonprofit Awards honorees!


Our summit kicks off with the awards event where we’ll celebrate 22 people in 8 categories including the new Samya Rose Stumo Youth Leadership Award.


After the awards event and an entertaining lunch break offering, we are thrilled to have Dr. Maria Sirois give our keynote presentation, “Holding it All – Resilience, Fear & Hope.” Maria is a master teacher, facilitator and author.  Known for her wisdom and rampant humor, Maria will have us all acknowledging the human spirit and laughing together.


Delve into other topics related to sustainability through four workshops and two panel discussions:


  • Innovation Accelerator Premortem
  • Diversity & Inclusion in the Workplace (Millennials, DEI & Accessibility, oh my!)
  • Emerging from the crisis and preparing for the future
  • What Doesn’t Kill us Makes us Stronger
  • Panel: Berkshire County Development Alliance
  • Panel: Berkshire Corporate Philanthropists


Icing on the cake – A fireside chat with infamous blogger Vu Le and our own Alex Reczkowski of The Berkshire Athenaem.


We’ll use a variety of functions to keep you engaged including Chat, Polling, and Q&A.  And we’ll have frequent breaks, entertaining lunch hours, a couple of fabulous auction items, and an online portal for presentation materials.  We’ve even got swag you can sign up for online.
