EDUCATIONAL WORKSHOPS

To ensure that Giving Women members and the wider community become truly informed philanthropists, we invite experts to share their knowledge, expertise and experience on specific topics related to philanthropy and sustainable development. These topics are selected based on the needs of the members of the Giving Women Project Circles.

Some examples of topics we address are: Monitoring & Evaluation; Fundraising; Crowdfunding, Governance and Communications for not-for-profits

FORMAT

Part I: Knowledge transfer and experience sharing: Experts provide the framework for discussion and place their technical and theoretical knowledge in the context of their personal experience.

Buffet Dinner

Part II: Turning ideas into actions: In groups of  4-6 people, participants are introduced to the project of another participant and collaborate to apply new learnings to their project. By the end of this session, each group will present its results to the audience who will share its feedback for improvement.

Networking opportunity with participants and speakers
