The ProInspire program is a unique combination of theory and hands on activities that prepared me to not only learn new concepts, but to apply those concepts immediately to my work process. ProInspire is the most well thought out training program that I have ever experienced. I appreciate the leadership and the structure and would highly recommend ProInspire to others who manage people or processes.

When was your last experience with this nonprofit?
As ProInspire Fellow, I was afforded the privilege to enter the non-profit field with ease through placement and trainings for a transition that would have otherwise been difficult. Over the course of the year, my cofellows and I were provided great professional training applicable for non-profit work and/or moving into other fields. As young professionals, the experience was invaluable for career growth and personal development.
I have worked and volunteered with ProInspire for the last six years. Monisha Kapila is an amazing example of a transformational leader. From idea to now brilliant inception, she has built and nurtured an organization that provides an important resource to the social sector: leaders.
The ProInspire team is top notch and a joy to work with and the work they do to be agile and innovative should be studied by every nonprofit.
ProInspire is an organization marking a definitive positive imprint on changing the world.
The ProInspire Fellowship afforded me the opportunity to transition my career, providing support, training, resources, and a cohort of other fellows from whom I learned so much.
ProInspire is an excellent organization for developing leaders to address some of the most pressing social challenges in the world. Completing the ProInspire Fellowship Program transformed my thinking around challenges that under served communities face around the world. The Program afforded me the opportunity to meet a bright community of colleagues who I have learned so much from. The training resources and professional development opportunities that I was exposed to as a result of participating in ProInspire are unparalleled. I am so thankful and appreciative for my experience with this organization.
I've worked with ProInspire in several different capacities, and have always been incredibly impressed by the team and the quality of their work! I highly recommend the Managing for Success program. The team-building and individual learning/reflection helped me to develop skills to advance in my career. I've also collaborated with the ProInspire team on several projects to advance diversity, equity, and inclusion in the nonprofit sector and am so impressed by their knowledge and dedication to that work.
Great organization that provides opportunity for young professionals in the private sector to make the leap to the social sector!
I have been a ProInspire fellow for about 5 months, and my experience has exceeded all expectations. From the job hunt process to career support, the ProInspire team has been hands-on, responsive, and knowledgeable. Thanks to the intentional fellowship workshops, I'm not only more confident navigating my career but I've also built a strong network in the nonprofit space. I know that the connections I've made with my class, the ProInspire team, alumni, and our speakers will give me a huge advantage going forward in my career.
I was blessed with the experience of being a ProInspire fellow (cohort 2015). Aside from gaining an entrance into the social sector and exploring a career path I am very interested in, the fellowship trainings, mentoring and coaching were invaluable. My leadership skills and self awareness were challenged like never before. I graduated the fellowship with a greater sense of humility and ability to lead at any level within an organization. I look forward to continually engaging with the ProInspire community now that I'm an alumni.
I'm a currently a fellow with ProInspire, an organization that has identified social sector demand for private sector business experience and is cultivating supply. My experience with ProInspire has been everything that I had hoped for and more. The level of talent working within the organization and the participating fellows is infectious (intangibles everywhere).
My experience with ProInspire changed my thinking about my career, the non-profit sector, and work-life in general. I knew going into my fellowship year that I would receive training and make connections through the organization and my cohort, but I was not prepared for the impact the experience would make on my thinking and decision making. The speakers who came in for training were thoughtful and provocative, and the discussions were engaging. Monisha and her team have developed an asset in ProInspire for leaders in the non-profit sector and for communities across the country.
I am a fellow with ProInspire and cannot speak highly enough of their leadership training capabilities, networking help, and professional development resources. ProInspire not only offers opportunity to individuals interested in serving in non-profit roles, but provides much needed research and dissemination of information to grow understanding of the changing nature of the sector and how organizations can better obtain and retain talent. ProInspire is served by outstanding leadership who have provided personal guidance to my and each individual fellows journey, while developing informative training and professional development opportunities.
