A New Peer Group for Leaders
in Not-For-Profit Organizations

Do you lead a not-for-profit organization?

Our organizations are truly mission oriented. How do I build these communal assets, without sacrificing personal security?

Not-for-profit leaders are assessed by a board and judged by donors. How do I speak truth to power?

In an unfinished, often broken world, our not-for-profit work never ends. How do I repair so many lives without jeopardizing my own well-being?


For Peers, Led by Peers

These are the questions we have faced, but we have not faced them alone. Since 2018, our first peer group has surrounded us with the professional insights — and human affection — of peers. 

To address the call for more seats around the table, we are opening a second group.

We are assembling a new peer group for leaders with executive authority in not-for-profit organizations.

We plan to launch this group in September 2024.

“With depth and consciousness, my peers provide excellent support, knowing when to let the group process and when to gracefully move conversation forward. I always walk away with new nuggets of wisdom, challenged to deepen my self-awareness, and re-energized to do the hard work that leadership requires.

“I have grown as a leader through my time in a peer group. The camaraderie, mentorship, professional development, collaboration, and support have been key to my own professional growth and thus the growth of Bridgeway Academy. Especially while working through the pandemic, my peer group has been a lifeline. They ask tough questions and are supportive and generous in their time and resources.”

A kind-hearted, but candid statement of intention

Qualitatively, we will admit people who are firing on all cylinders:

  • are authentic and willingly vulnerable
  • are smart, ambitious, and successful
  • are trusting and trustworthy — confidentiality without exceptions!
  • are earnest, but don’t take themselves too seriously
  • confront their peers kindly
  • play the big game — are willing to bring their biggest challenges
  • can engage — show up on time, focus (no cell phones), lean in
  • are experienced enough to know they need to change — and energetic enough to do it.
