GFC Goes to Harvard
GFC CEO Whitney Smith and former GFC Co-CEO Niko Everett were given an amazing opportunity in summer 2007 to attend the Harvard Business School's Strategic Perspectives in Nonprofit Management with a generous scholarship from the Bay Area Harvard MBA Alumni group. The program welcomed 100 non-profit leaders from around the world to work with the HBS faculty to examine their missions and rethink our approaches for  implementation and replication.

"The HBS professors were truly the finest 'teachers' we have ever experienced," Niko said. "We challenged our own mission, vision, evaluation, and strategy. We pushed our own thought process further then we have ever had the time or support to before" The outcome? "Of course, the learning is integrated into our daily actions but we actually flew an Executive Director candidate out to our dorms in Harvard after a particularly stimulating session on attitude versus aptitude and have since brought her on as our shining new star in Phoenix! We imagine the impact to continue to reveal itself and in the meantime, we will miss dorm life and all-nighters."
