The largest NGO in the world, and in many people’s estimation the most effective, is BRAC. And you don’t get to be that way without a great workplace culture. So this evening, we’ll be visiting the New York offices of BRAC to see what makes it such a special place and hear from some of the members of the team, starting with the President and CEO of BRAC USA, Donella Rapier:
The Natural Resources Defense Council works to safeguard the Earth– its people, its plants, and its animals, and the natural systems on which all life depends. With an administration that has been less than friendly to the environment, they’ve been working overtime, often just to stay in place. It’s a pleasure to have with us tonight, the president of NRDC, as they’re called, Rhea Suh.
We visit the best corporate cultures of nonprofit organizations and social good businesses, but there are some wonderful work environments in the governmental sector as well. And one of those would be OPIC, the Overseas Private Investment Corporation. So today, we’ll be heading down to 1100 New York Avenue in Washington, D.C. to hear from some of the members of the OPIC team.
