    B is for burnout

    B is for burnout

    #Healthy Grant Pro is a small group of grant professionals who came together to study the impact of burnout in the grants profession.

    Together, we unpack the impact the lack of investment in infrastructure increases burnout and why the nonprofit sector is so vulnerable to work/life imbalance. We discuss the strategic investments funders can make in order to reduce burnout for organizations and the over all ripple effect it has on our communities.

So helpful

Monique and Taylor have taught me so much in these podcast episodes. I love the conversations they bring and a wealth of knowledge for anyone involved in the nonprofit space or looking for more information. Such important work and I love the dynamic between these two women. Both powerhouses.

The podcast our sector needs

The bold, courageous, inclusive + compassionate approach Taylor and Monique are taking to address the systemic issues holding impact back is aspirational. These are two world-changers who are rearchitecting nonprofit structures - for good. Give it a listen. It’s shifting my worldview in a beautiful, healthy way. Keep going, amazing ladies 🫶

Valuable Lessons

There are just so many gems in this podcast - from its engaging hosts and brilliant guest speakers to the mic-drop worthy lessons exposing where our systems of giving are falling short. You are sure to learn something new; I certainly have! These conversations are valuable for anyone who wants to give well (of our time, talents, and treasures) at our jobs and in our communities. Thanks, Shortchanged!
