A special event presented by the Young Leaders Breakfast Club and open to all Philanthropy New York members.
What does the leadership road map look like from where you are?
Leading from where you sit within an organization is an ever present challenge to navigate - no matter where you are within your organization’s hierarchy. What does this leadership actually look like in different contexts? Join us for an interactive workshop hosted by the Young Leaders Breakfast Club to develop skills and strategies for managing up and communicating effectively to influence ideas and decisions within the structured hierarchy of philanthropic institutions.


  • How to identify opportunities to influence organizational decision making 
  • Tools to develop a more systematic approach to influencing strategy development within your organization
  • Tips for pitching ideas effectively
