2019 Communications Cohort

The Communications Cohort was created in response to a survey of mid-career communications staff and their supervisors. We discovered that many feel isolated in their roles and eager to build their professional knowledge, skills, and networks. In response, NCG has created a Communications Cohort specifically for mid-career philanthropic communications professions who are looking to foster peer support, share best practices, and create long-lasting peer communications. 

January 2019 will kick off NCG's first-of-its-kind six-month training program. The Cohort convenes once a month with a small inaugural class. 

The Experience will Feature:
