Introducing: Goodness News!

GoodnessNews

One thing that I really believe in is the power of listening to other people. Listening stimulates empathy and increases your knowledge and understanding of the world around you. One of the downsides I’ve found of churning out blog content every week is that it actually has been cutting down on the amount of time I am able to spend listening to other voices in the field and catching up on the news and information flowing around me. In short, I feel like I’ve been spending too much of my time and energy on talking, and not enough on listening, and it is for this reason that I have decided to dedicate every other week to highlighting writing and reporting from experts other than myself.

My new biweekly Goodness News posts will focus on news and opinions on the state of goodness in our community and our world – including philanthropy, advocacy, and well-being.

News & Analysis

Blogs & Opinion

  • New grad looking to enter the nonprofit sector? Vu Le has some great (and humorous) advice to get you started.
  • Talking about race is almost never easy. Net Impact published a fantastic post on how to have meaningful conversations on the subject of race.
  • There is still much to be done to advance equality for LGBT Americans, even in light of the recent U.S. Supreme Court decision on same-sex marriage. This week, the Chronicle of Philanthropy addresses balancing LGBT issues with other giving current priorities.

Please let me know in the comments what you think of my new format for Goodness News, and as always, thanks for reading!
