When Being Cheap Isn't Worth the Cost for Non-Profits

Alex Budak | Posted 10.20.2015 | Impact
Alex Budak

I believe there are three specific areas where it's imperative that non-profits spend more money, rather than less. And paradoxically by spending more money in these ways, it will reduce the total amount of money the organization spends over the long-term, all while magnifying the impact.

Should US Follow Europe's Lead for Gender Quotas on Boards?

Rebecca Shambaugh | Posted 05.18.2015 | Business
