Nonprofit leaders can’t continue to do the same things and expect different results in their work to help move the United States toward greater equity.

In this podcast from our 2017 Nonprofit Management Institute, PolicyLink President Michael McAfee (@mikemcafee06) shares his perspective on being both angry and excited about the changes America needs to make—and using both of those emotions in a productive way.

Before taking the helm of PolicyLink, McAfee was the inaugural director of the racial- and economic-justice research organization’s Promise Neighborhoods Institute.
Before that, he was a senior community planning and development representative with the US Department of Housing and Urban Development.

Here he offers advice on thinking big and having the courage to lead and advance systemic change.
