Do you want to be a change agent?

We are living in a time defined by rapid change. Our ability to thrive depends on our capacity to adapt, collaborate and innovate. But how can you be a driver of innovation when you’re not yet in the C-suite?

This session will explore core concepts like social intrapreneurship and provide you with the tools necessary to become a successful changemaker - not only within your organization, but within the sector as a whole. No matter where you work, or at what level, you can lead an initiative to better yourself, your organization, and the world. So grab a seat at the table and channel your inner social intrapreneur to solve the challenges facing your organization, as we strive to become stronger, more resilient fundraising leaders.

Learning Outcomes:

1. Understand social intrapreneurship and innovation through a fundraising lens

2. Using real life examples, gain the tools necessary to help you innovate and enact change from exactly where you are

3. Learn how to identify allies within your organization, and in leadership, to help propel your vision or initiative forward
