For the eighth year, the National Diaper Bank Network brings together individuals and organizations involved in addressing diaper need, an often hidden consequence of poverty.
The 2019 conference theme – Teaming Up to End Diaper Need – embodies our commitment to diaper bank leaders across the United States as champions for change in their communities.
Diaper need affects every city and state, and we believe that by working together, nonprofit leaders, anti-poverty advocates, health and social service workers, community organizers and social influencers can each play a significant role in helping infants and toddlers have access to clean diapers. Aligned in our mission to end diaper need, NDBN’s Annual Conference brings together spirited collaboration, innovation and fearless commitment to our common cause.
The only national conference to provide such training, this unique two-day event brings together many different types of organizations, providing professional-level nonprofit leadership training. Workshops focus on capacity building, strategic planning, grassroots mobilization, fundraising, and best practices for diaper programs of all sizes. Sessions and speakers offer a high level of strategic thinking about the complexities of poverty in the U.S. and how providing diapers and other basic needs creates new opportunities to help low income populations overcome barriers and achieve more.
