Meeting the Future With a New Approach to Readiness

Across social impact work, it’s widely recognized that traditional approaches to organizational “readiness” often create barriers to progress, and that a radical reimagining of the term is long overdue.

In our two-part blog series, we introduce four key principles and practices to help guide the shift.

In Part One we take a deeper dive into the principles of malleability and joint determination and provide practical applications to help funders show up ready, along with the organizations they serve.

Part Two explores why it’s crucial for organizations to examine their history and values, as well as those of the communities they aim to support, and shares practices to help ensure that all stakeholders are being heard.

Disability Pride month was recognized with a panel discussion hosted by the Accessibility Employee Resource Group & Learning Committee, to engage in discussion around building space, inclusion, empowerment & finding allies. #disabilitypride #livingourvalues #inclusionmatters
