Leadership is more than the day-to-day grind. It requires innovation, creation, patience, juggling, insight, and timing. Let’s face it, it’s exhausting. Adding to that the complexities of being a woman in power in the nonprofit space, and the challenge is unique.

Mora makes room for you to take off your title among women who also understand the challenges you deal with each day. While retreating you will enjoy learning sessions that inspire and are curated to expand and deepen your leadership. You will have ample space for reflection and rest at this 4-diamond property and to take advantage of the desert sun.

This leadership retreat spans five days and four nights at carefully selected location; the retreat is designed to be a departure from traditional leadership conferences by focusing on a diverse and intimate group of women nonprofit leaders.

This experience is invitation based; we encourage you to request an invitation. Registration opens in June 2023.


Essential and scientifically proven to be one of the most important aspects of success. Mora centers rest by slowing the pace, making space, and encouraging breaks. Rest is a foundational pillar of the Mora Retreat series.


To restore one’s energy and joy in leadership, we must revive ourselves. Mora brings revival by intuitive activities and curated learning sessions designed to support and encourage our participants.


The opportunity to reflect on where we have been and where we are going fuels our ability to vision. The schedule of Mora is crafted to provide ample space for reflections both on oneself and the learnings.
