We’re excited to bring a fantastic lineup of national and statewide experts to the conference in 2022.  


Vu Le

Vu Le (“voo lay”) is a writer, speaker, vegan, Pisces, and the former Executive Director of RVC, a nonprofit in Seattle that promotes social justice by developing leaders of color, strengthening organizations led by communities of color, and fostering collaboration between diverse communities.

Vu’s passion to make the world better, combined with a low score on the Law School Admission Test, drove him into the field of nonprofit work, where he learned that we should take the work seriously, but not ourselves. There’s tons of humor in the nonprofit world, and someone needs to document it. He is going to do that, with the hope that one day, a TV producer will see how cool and interesting our field is and make a show about nonprofit work, featuring attractive actors attending strategic planning meetings and filing 990 tax forms.

Known for his no-BS approach, irreverent sense of humor, and love of unicorns, Vu has been featured in dozens, if not hundreds, of his own blog posts at

Vu’s keynote is titled “Self-Care During the Apocalypse.” It has been a rough few years. All of us are stretched to capacity. Our work remains vital, but it has been relentless. How do we take care of ourselves and one another and conserve the strength we need to advance a just and equitable world? What philosophies and practices must we unlearn? What are new ones we must adopt? The world needs us, but in order to serve it effectively, we need to prioritize our wellbeing. We will touch on these and other topics in a presentation that will likely include pictures of baby animals.
