Education & Events Speaker Application

AZ Impact for Good produces educational events (workshops and webinars, among other learning opportunities) in partnership with other organizations and individuals. Some of these partners are nonprofit organizations or community groups, others are companies or consultants who seek to share information about their areas of expertise, products, and services through educational events.

We strive to provide high-quality content delivered by experienced speakers, trainers and content experts that fit into one or more of these 8 tracks:

  • Advocacy
  • Board Governance
  • Executive Training
  • Programs/Volunteers
  • Development/Fundraising
  • Marketing
  • Inclusion, Diversity, Equity, and, Accessibility
  • HR/Finance

Our goal is to provide resources to our members and the nonprofit + grantmaker sectors no matter what level of experience they may have - beginner, intermediate, or advanced. We give preference to topics that are applicable to audiences from varying organizational sizes and budgets.

We accept submissions throughout the year, however we do have specific times of the year where we request applications for just signature events like our conference and summit. We strive to promptly respond to individuals year-round, aiming to communicate within an average of 30 days.  

If you would like to submit more than one topic, please complete multiple forms. 

 We judge these applications based on the following criteria: 

  1. Is this proposed topic interesting to the entire nonprofit sector in a significant way?
  2. Is the speaker qualified to lead a training on this topic?
  3. Does this speaker and topic reflect the values and perspectives of a broad diversity of community members, and particularly those community members who have been historically underrepresented or marginalized?

All speakers must read and consider our Guide on Engaging and Accessible Presentations.

Should you have any questions, please contact events@azimpactforgood.org.

We are committed to being a valuable member of the communities in which we live and operate. Diversity in our supplier base is an important part of that commitment. Through our Supplier Diversity Program, we are dedicated to diversifying our supplier base to include minority-owned (MBE), women-owned (WBE), veteran-owned (DVBE), LGBTQ (Lesbian, Gay, Bi-Sexual, Transgender, Queer/LGBTBE)-owned and disabled-owned businesses and individuals whenever possible. We actively work to include diverse suppliers in every presenting opportunity. 

Please use this space to self-identify if you feel comfortable doing so. THIS IS NOT REQUIRED.
