Originally convened in 2014 by the Human Services Coalition, the Executive Exchange affinity group provides opportunities for area not-for-profit executive directors to share, learn, and discuss topics relevant to their sector.
Executive Exchange (ExEx) supports and inspires not-for profit executive directors in Tompkins County through personal and professional growth, and networking opportunities that embody diversity, equity, and inclusion in all we do.
EXEX will be an inclusive, inspiring community for current and emerging not-for-profit leaders in Tompkins County.
The Values of ExEx are Curiosity, Integrity, Equity and Community. This shows up for us in the following ways:
Curiosity. We are open to new ideas, information, and experiences that lead to learning and growth.
Integrity. We embrace accountable reliability and create a space for mutual trust and respect.
Equity. We make the organization accessible and inclusive, work to remove barriers and cultivate emerging leaders.
Community. We share and mobilize ideas and resources, collaborating and being intentionally welcoming and inclusive.
