The COVID-19 pandemic and the response to it has shown people all over the world that dramatic change is possible – and it’s possible quickly.

Ami Dar is the Founder & Executive Director of Idealist.org, the top resource for finding jobs, internships, and volunteer opportunities with nonprofit organizations. In this episode, Ami joins host Danielle Holly for a conversation on how COVID-19 has impacted the private and social sectors – and why not everything should go back to the way it was.

From more flexible hiring processes and work environments to more inclusive conferences and less business travel and pollution, work culture is evolving, and it’s giving us hope for the future. Hear how Idealist has embraced change not only this year but throughout its 25-year history, plus insights on nonprofit hiring and volunteerism since March.
