Study after study confirms what conventional wisdom tells us—the majority of nonprofit leaders of today will not be here tomorrow (tomorrow being defined as the next 5 to 7 years.) Current leadership positions in nonprofits are predominantly filled with members of the Baby Boom generation who will continue to transition into other types of work or retirement leaving a “leadership deficit” over the next decade that creates one of the biggest challenges facing the social sector today.
