NP2020 is an initiative to give emerging leaders a voice in the nonprofit sector. According to emerging leaders at the NP2020 Conference, in 2007, the leadership deficit is here now. Emerging leaders are ready to be mentored, they believe there are structural challenges to their nonprofit careers, and feel the sector needs more diversity. NP2020 participants believe funders need to support more operating costs to address these issues in the sector. Overall, the consensus was conversations about these issues need to continue. NP2020 is a place for emerging leaders to come together in the nonprofit sector and share their voice through many venues.
