VIDEO: Board Fellows Forum, “Stronger Together,” a Success

Each year, the Ross School of Business’s Business+Impact Initiative selects a group of Nonprofit Board Fellows to serve as non-voting members of boards across Southeast Michigan. The Ross community prides itself on using business as a function to create a more equitable and just society, and for over 20 years this program has served as a critical opportunity for graduate students to become involved in, and contribute to, local communities and causes. Each year, the Fellowship hosts a public forum in the form of a panel discussion with representatives from local nonprofit organizations.

This year, the theme of the forum was “Stronger Together: How Nonprofits Can Collaborate.” We believe that collaboration between nonprofits will only become more instrumental in combating injustices across America. The panel discussion featured four local nonprofit experts:

Kyla Carlsen, Co.act Detroit
Kelly Maxwell, DDNRC

Courtney Smith, Detroit Phoenix Center
Kevin Thompson, Good Inc
