Exciting news and updates from ProInspire!
Dear <<First Name>>,

It has been a busy Fall around here as we welcome over 60 emerging leaders into ProInspire's programs. Over the past few months, we placed and launched the 2015 class of ProInspire Fellows in Washington D.C. and the
San Francisco Bay Area. In September we kicked off the the inaugural San Francisco Bay Area cohort of Management Fellows, and our fifth DC cohort of Management Fellows.

We continue to work on our strategy process, looking at what we have learned over the past six years and how ProInspire can define a bold goal for the future. Our participation in the Annie E. Casey Foundation's Social Sector Talent Pipelines Strategy & Learning Lab has provided us opportunity to understand results based leadership, collaborate with peer organizations, and deepen our work to build a diverse talent pipeline.
In addition, The Chronicle of Philanthropy featured our recently released report on Millennials in the nonprofit workforce, and we received a 2015 Top-Rated Award from GreatNonprofits!
Read on for details about all of these exciting developments.

2015 ProInspire Fellows

We’re excited to welcome the 2015 ProInspire Fellows in Washington D.C. and the San Francisco Bay Area. We selected these 22 professionals from over 750 applications (a 3% selection rate) for placement at one of ProInspire’s nonprofit and social enterprise partners. Bringing an average of four years of experience at companies such as Booz Allen Hamilton, Ernst & Young and JP Morgan Chase, the Fellows have taken on critical social sector roles in finance, impact investing, marketing, operations, and strategy. 59% of Fellows are persons of color and 81% are new to working full-time in the social sector. We are energized to work with this talented, passionate group of professionals, as well as 12 returning and five new partner organizations in DC and SF (see sidebar for full listing).

Inaugural SF Management Fellows

We’re thrilled to launch Managing for Success on the west coast. Interest in the first Bay Area cohort exceeded our expectations and we have brought together a fantastic group of 21 Management Fellows. They are 
convening for three full-day workshops following ProInspire's curriculum: managing self, managing individuals, and managing in organizations. Management Fellows also benefit from assessments, peer coaching, and interaction with nonprofit CEOs. Participants in this cohort have an average of four years of management experience (managing people, projects, funders, budgets, stakeholders or teams), and 43% are persons of color. You can meet the inaugural class of SF Management Fellows here.

Fall 2015 DC Management Fellows

The Fall cohort of DC Management Fellows recently kicked off its four-month targeted leadership development program. The group of 18 social sector professionals from 11 organizations participate in ProInspire's three full-day workshops and a retreat with Managing for Success alumni. 39% of DC Management Fellows are persons of color. Meet the Fall 2015 DC Management Fellows here

We are grateful to the following organizations for their support of Managing for Success:
