A two-day interactive workshop designed to strengthen participants’ professional leadership skills for work in the fields of human rights and social justice. Designed for staff and organizational leaders (including board members) in NGOs, grassroots organizations, networks, social movements, and donor agencies.
The workshop begins with ecosystem analysis in order for participants to identify and understand opportunities and challenges for effective action within their own organizations and other actors within broader social movements in human rights and social justice. It then moves into a more nuts and bolts focus on how to best design and implement human rights work. Covered topics include mission and goals, strategic planning, governance, horizontal management, organizational structures, working with donors and fundraising, partnerships, models of revenue generation, and measuring success.
Prior knowledge and experience in human rights is an asset, but not required to benefit from this workshop. Participants should have some previous professional experience, but current students are also welcome.
