Business and Social Mission Tensions in Nonprofits

Blog 1 - Business and social mission

Over the past year, I did a research on business and social mission tension in nonprofit organizations. The work stems from my background, experiences, and interest in nonprofit and public service. I had the joy and privilege of interviewing eight nonprofit executive leaders in the US, and gained much insights and learning from them.

In four LinkedIn posts, I shared my research.

Part 1 – What business and social mission tensions in nonprofits look like

Part 2 – How does being nonprofit contribute to such tensions

Part 3 – What nonprofit executives do to manage those tensions

Part 4 – My thoughts and takeaways on the research

I’m sharing these as links, rather than the full articles themselves.
