A year into the COVID-19 pandemic, the nonprofit and social impact communities (the “community sector”) continue to adapt and learn. In a context of ongoing disruptions and increased service demand, maintaining a clear focus on strategy and desired impact has become more important than ever. 

In this webinar, Douglas Brodhead and Ana Sofia Hibon of Innoweave will be sharing their insights on what they are seeing in the sector, including:

  • Innoweave’s perceptions of how community is adapting and innovating; 
  • Approaches to help your organization adapt and clarify its strategy; 
  • Examples of how some organizations are putting these approaches in practice in order to grow their impact.
