June 13, 5:30 PM, Hudson River Museum: NPW Summer Celebration & Networking Party


NPW is appreciative of the sponsors that support our programs. Learn about them HERE.




Thank you to everyone who joined us to celebrate the One Year Anniversary of NPW's Peer to Peer Affinity Group - the first-ever affinity group for nonprofit personnel of color in Westchester.

We are beyond proud and honored to have had over 150 participants join us in creating a space for BIPOC nonprofit professionals to connect, network, and learn together since May 19, 2022!

Thank you to the spectacular chairpeople of the Peer to Peer Affinity Group, who made this all possible:

  • Dr. Alexandria Connally, NPW's Racial Equity Consultant and CEO & Founder of Culturally Responsive Environments and Disciplines
  • Lucria Ortiz, NPW Board Member and President & CEO of Yonkers Family YMCA
  • Michelle A. Nicholas, NPW Board Member and Founder & CEO of The Nico Consulting, Inc.

During the celebration, we honored Dr. Alexandria Connally for her fierce leadership, wisdom and authenticity in leading the group with an award, two proclamations from the county and her very own "Dr. Alexandria Connally Day" in Westchester County!

We also had the honor to hear from Deputy County Executive Ken Jenkins and Rev. Kymberly McNair.

We appreciate the overwhelming support from our government partners and sponsors! Thank you Westchester County Government, Westchester County Board of Legislators, PCSB Bank, United Way of Westchester and Putnam, Pace University, and Westchester Library System.

On May 17th, Attorney General Letitia James hosted the "Doing Well While Doing Good" Symposium at Westchester Community College. NPW Executive Director, Jan Fisher, had the honor of introducing County Executive George Latimer.
