Keynote: Laura Lanzerotti, Partner, The Bridgespan Group!

In this webcast, recorded April 2022 at AAFCPAs’ Nonprofit Educational Seminar, AAFCPAs’ Managing Partner Carla McCall chats with this year’s keynote Laura Lanzerotti about nonprofits and innovation.

Laura leads Bridgespan’s work in Innovation Strategy and Collaborative Processes. Since joining Bridgespan in 2006, she has supported a number of institutional and family philanthropies to develop and refine their impact strategies and nonprofit leaders to pursue innovation and scale in a variety of fields including early childhood, youth development, economic opportunity, and place-based change. Some of her recent clients include The Studio @ Blue Meridian, PolicyLink, Low Income Investment Fund (LIIF), Eden Housing, and Hopelab.

Laura’s specialty is designing innovative and inclusive strategy processes, including a project for the W.K. Kellogg Foundation that engaged hundreds of people in developing an economic development plan for their community, an “open strategy” project for the Wikimedia Foundation to which over a thousand people across the globe contributed, and support for a group of funders in the early childhood field to help them align investments to improve kindergarten readiness.

Laura is co-author of “Twin Engines for Propelling Social Impact,” (Stanford Social Innovation Review, 2021) and “Is Your Nonprofit Built for Sustained Innovation?,” (SSIR, 2017), among others.
