Bringing Down the Walls

Bringing Down the Walls

Building Networks and Strengthening Collaborations for Greater Impact

Is your nonprofit organization striving to “get to scale” and create meaningful relationships for greater mission impact?

The desire for cross-sector collaboration is a quintessential trait for the modern nonprofit. Strong and impactful networks, however, are not achieved by implementing a technological system or strategy. Foundation and nonprofit leaders must change the way they work in fundamental ways, shifting their mindsets from the organization to the network as the primary vehicle for impact. HDC and GlobalWA invite our members and the community at large to participate in a day of learning focused on the Networked Nonprofit.

Jane Wei Skillern PicJane Wei-Skillern, Phd.
Associate Professor, UC Berkeley

Session 1: Jane Wei-Skillern will lead participants through a common set of operating principles that all successful networks share. Jane will explore the four counter-intuitive principles she has identified through years of research, and will work through case examples of high impact networks with session participants.

A Global Crisis: Life in Fragile States and the Effects of Mass Migration

Every few months, an image makes the rounds on social media that forces us to pay attention. A tiny body washing ashore on a Turkish beach; a dazed Syrian child sitting in an ambulance and covered in dust and blood. These are the images of mass migration, but they are more than just images. They are the reality of the violence and insecurity within countries in turmoil; which are home to 43 percent of the global population.

In the midst of this devastation, numerous international non-profit organizations are working to find solutions. Join GlobalWA along with leaders from AmeriCares, International Rescue Committee and Oxfam America for a panel discussion addressing their roles in this crisis and the challenges and opportunities that lie ahead.
