Change is constant, and our world is changing more rapidly than ever before. Responsive nonprofit organizations are agile enough to evolve and adapt strategically over time while staying true to shared vision and values. Planning and strategy can be ongoing, dynamic processes driven by evaluation and data and guided by community voices. Nonprofits can engage in inclusive and equitable planning to create strategy. In this interactive session, you will gain an understanding of participatory planning, learn how to gather and incorporate community data to inform planning, practice using key tools for inclusive planning and strategic decision-making, and build skills to create strategy to guide your organization toward your vision. We will also explore organizational culture as key to creating and implementing strategy, and discuss elements of inclusive, equitable, and positive organizational culture. This course is appropriate for representatives from organizations of any size or developmental stage, whether you are new or experienced in the nonprofit field. This class is taught by Beth Trigg.

Cost per class: $50 (online). *classes are designed to be affordable and are free for organizations with a budget under $50K. Contact us for details.
