Digital Engagement to Inspire, Attract and Engage Volunteers
Liz Ngonzi 
Founder, The International Social Impact Institute at Hunter College
The COVID-19 pandemic has forced most of our professional interactions to become virtual, requiring nonprofit organizations to recognize how critical digital platforms are (and will be) to their success, both during and after the pandemic. Join us to discover how to find volunteers who will be most interested in your work; how to approach and develop relationships with them; & what it takes to make your organization stand out.
