Wine on One- Social Media and Work-Life Integration

July 11, 2017

Friending volunteers... at mentioning board members on Twitter... LinkingIn with staff... attending networking events three evenings a week... dinner with a colleague from another organization. 

Forget work-life balance, for those of us that live the nonprofit life, work-life integration is where we're trending.

How much social should be in your networking?  It's a complicated issue, so Marjorie and Natalie grabbed a bottle of wine to figure out some answers.
