In partnership with Flintridge Center, Pasadena Community Foundation and YWCA Pasadena-Foothill Valley, KPCC presented Coffee and Conversation with Jan Masaoka. Jan Masaoka is the Director and Editor-In-Chief of Blue Avocado, an influential online non-profit magazine with 60,000 subscribers. Her unconventional and provocative thinking is based on a national scope of work including 14 years as executive director of CompassPoint Nonprofit Services, a consulting and training firm for nonprofits based in San Francisco and Silicon Valley. Jan has been named eight times as one of the "Fifty Most Influential People" in the nonprofit sector nationwide, and in 2005 she was named “California Community Leader of the Year” by Leadership California. Please join us for a fast-moving and free-wheeling discussion about hard decisions, doing less with less, and instead of seeking to survive or even thrive, seeking to prevail.
