Lead as You Learn Like Never Before

Join us in a special pilot project to take professional development into the next generation. Become part of a dynamic group of current and future non-profit leaders who will explore how Open Badge eCredentials can help make learning more accessible and useful for Manitoba’s non-profits.

In addition to helping your sector, you’ll gain valuable insights about skills frameworks, developing leadership capabilities and other helpful resources that you can bring back to your organization.

Why is MFNPO piloting Open Badge eCredentials?

Our mission as Manitoba’s non-profit sector organization is to create professional development pathways that will deliver the skills needed in the sector at large. The Open Badge eCredentials initiative is a new, leading-edge, and vital tool to help us fulfill that mission.

Open Badges recognize skills learned and nurtured outside of the conventional classroom. Based on a common digital standard, they can be shared over networks and social media like LinkedIn. They can help individuals build their careers and employers find the skills they need. (Find out more at

Through this initiative, MFNPO will change the way our sector looks at professional development. The initiative can keep our sector nimble and robust as we adapt to the continuously changing world of work by promoting and recognizing all forms of learning.

As the sector council for non-profit organizations in Manitoba, it is our duty to lead, explore, and innovate. Please join us!
