With more than 40 years of social profit experience, as CEO, CDO, trustee, and some other interesting iterations of nonprofit positions Joan Baumgartner Brown brings diverse perspectives to her teaching, consulting and coaching. Having mentored nonprofit leaders in human service, arts and culture, health care and foundation leadership, both at home in the Midwest and internationally, Joan brings both depth and breadth of knowledge to the training and retaining of future leaders for the sector.
Serious about results, but not so serious about herself, Joan infuses her work with humor and empathy, and values relationship building above all other aspects of nonprofit success. She believes the work to be immeasurably satisfying and indescribably weighty, all at the same time, and is committed to nurturing nonprofit professionals and organizations that grow to be successful, creative and resilient. And who strengthen their communities, families and individuals by staying true to their mission.
