New Voices from the Voluntary Sector book features McGill-McConnell grads

Voices from the Voluntary Sector is a new publication featuring a selection of more than two dozen papers written by graduates of the McGill-McConnell Master of Management for National Voluntary Sector Leaders program.

Edited by Frederick Bird and Frances Westley, who led the McGill-McConnell program and who is currently the J.W. McConnell Chair in Social Innovation at the University of Waterloo, Voices from the Voluntary Sector contains reflections by practitioners on some of the significant challenges faced by today’s not-for-profit organizations in Canada. Broad in scope, these essays present a rich, multidimensional set of vignettes that as a whole express the vitality and humanity of the voluntary sector.

The contributors are Shawn Bayes, Frederick Bird, Cindy Blackstock, Charlotte Cloutier, Jacquie Dale, Jerry V. Demarco, Jennifer Flanagan, Marc Langlois, Lily Mah-Sen, Lynda Manser, Margaret McGregor, Elizabeth Moreau, Ida Mutoigo, Alain Roy, Robert Ryan, Bernard Voyer, and Frances Westley.
