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. - Monique Wiley-Crawford, Year Up NCR (2014 DC Management Fellow)

ProInspire supports leaders and aspiring managers in the Social Sector to maximize their potential through innovative professional development opportunities. As a ProInspire Fellow in 2015, I connected and built on-going relationships with peers and thought leaders in the industry who've contributed to focus my skills and interest to areas of most impact. Through the Fellowship, I learnt new skills as a manager and further understood current and emerging trends in social sector leadership. ProInspire is a best in class organization!

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.

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.
