The CSC Book Club is a community gathering space to explore the ways in which the nonprofit sector perpetuates harmful practices, inequitable systems, and unjust outcomes. This group invites curiosity, honest reflection, and authenticity, and isn’t seeking to prescribe ways of being. It’s built for the nonprofit enthusiast who is ready and willing to explore personal and organizational assumptions, practices, systems, and cultures.
Each quarter, we will select a book that explores our cultural assumptions and systems, then meet to talk through it with an eye towards how nonprofit organizations uphold or challenge these norms, and what individual’s roles are in reflecting and acting.
Join MNA for an informal book club, meeting for the first time on March 29th, 2022 from 1:00 PM -2:30 PM. The first book we will be exploring is “Laziness Does Not Exist” by Devon Price.
There is an option to join an email chain beforehand in case you’d like to share updates/questions prior to meeting as well as an option to “borrow” the book from the MNA Library. Affinity breakout rooms can also be requested during the session.
