Virtual Office Hour: Managing Change in (Rapidly) Changing Times

When:  Mar 26, 2020 from 2:00 PM to 3:00 PM (ET)
Associated with  NSF INCLUDES National Network

This has been a time of massive disruption in all of our lives and work. Those of us who are facilitating and supporting collective impact will have to lead our groups through change. This may involve:

  • Changing the common agenda, intended results, or performance measures
  • Adapting strategies and workplans
  • Assisting partners who are meeting urgent needs or are facing organizational crises
  • Changing your teams, meetings, and communication, including moving to virtual work
  • Working with funders to lift restrictions on grants to focus on urgent needs of community members and organization
While this event focuses on collective impact, some of these changes are changes that all projects might be experiencing on some level. So if you have questions about how to manage these changes during this time, join the Collective Impact Forum's Virtual Office Hour where they will answer questions and offer recommendations and resources for what to think about and how to move forward when your work seems to be shifting by the day.

This session will also kick-off a series of weekly office hours every Thursday at 2pm ET from this week through April 23. If you want to join, but can’t make this week, join a future session.

They will also be sharing the recordings soon after. Feel free to register even if you can’t make it, and they'll notify you when the recording is up- normally in just a few hours after the live event.

What’s a Virtual Office Hour?

The Virtual Office Hour is a way to respond to the burning questions of collective impact practitioners. This will be a casual Q&A session: no formal presentation, but rather an opportunity to spend the hour answering questions about a specific topic.

Have a question that you’d like answered? Share your questions when you register, and we’ll spend the first part of the hour answering some of these questions, before moving to live Q&A with attendees. We will work through as many of the questions we receive as possible in the hour.
