She’s passionate about engaging a diverse group of students to help further the University, and that’s why she’s also chairing the CASE Diversity and Student Advancement Seminar, online, October 15-20.

Gail Perry - Listen to your donor's passion
Can we raise money in this challenging time? Well, many of our bigger donors have more cash right now, quite a few have seen investments balloon, and the need is very great.
Gail Perry spends her time helping fundraisers and non-profit leaders. And she thinks we should look at it differently.
It's not about a better "pitch." Sometimes, we just need to get out of our own way, maximize our use of emotional intelligence, the right metrics, and focus on the joy of giving for donors.
We unpack what's going on right now in the midst of a pandemic, the best ways that fundraisers can engage donors, and how philanthropy is thriving at a time we need it the most.

Brady Josephson at NextAfter - The power of experiments to amplify donor action
I’m excited to bring back on today’s episode Brady Josephson, managing director of the NextAfter institute. He spends his days conducting experiments, tests and looking deep into the data of donor response to see how we can do a better job communicating with and spurring action from our supporters. We cover what he's seeing as organizations reach out during the COVID-19 pandemic. Thinking critically about all aspects of your appeals is crucial – and testing and experimenting is a big part of challenging the norm and doing a better job with how we convert donors to action is really important right now.
