The COVID-19 pandemic presented many challenges for non-profit organizations and social enterprises, creating a high degree of uncertainty and necessitating a quick and decisive response to mitigate risk and maintain operations. However, it also challenged us to reimagine how we work and rechart a course to long-term sustainability.
This three-part series walks you through the phases of re-examining how your organization can maximize its impact, pivot effectively in response to external factors and embed agility into your organizational fabric. You’ll also see first-hand examples of how CanAge has leveraged these processes and approaches to achieve policy change and organizational growth, transforming from a small group of volunteers to a rapidly-growing non-profit organization with multiple revenue and funding streams over the course of just one year.
Session 2: Building sustainability
Times of challenge call for innovative thinking to pivot your business in response to the current climate. This session offers different strategies to respond quickly and thoughtfully to external factors, ensuring your organization remains relevant, effective and, above all else, sustainable. Forging strategic partnerships, refining and re-examining your value proposition, re-branding and diversifying revenue streams are all discussed, along with specific examples of how it all comes together to ensure you can weather the storm.
