This workshop is based on the RISE Framework and will allow participants to explore the connection between social change and grant support. Attendees will receive an overview of the Framework’s four hallmarks – Relevance, Impact, Sustainability, Excellence in management and operations. We will examine what organizational characteristics are seen as promising when viewed through the eyes of potential grant proposal reviewers.

The session will particularly focus on the Framework’s concepts of relevance and impact and how they relate to employees’ roles to improve the agency’s fundability. Ways to help staff better understand how data can be interpreted, including when it can be used as a performance weapon, will be shared. Use of data as a communication tool to internally inspire and externally celebrate will be encouraged. Class size is limited to 20.
