Building a resilient network
A toolkit aimed at those who are considering a leadership change, those exiting, those managing transition and succession planning within organisations and those who are replacing a leader as incoming CEO.
It is specifically aimed at non-profit organisations. Through many years of working with leaders and activists in the area of social change, we recognise the challenge of transferring power from one leader to another.
Executive transitions and leadership succession can be difficult for all organisations, with specific challenges for non-profits. This guide is informed by the latest literature and theory and the practical experience of 20 non-profit organisations working in the area of social change. In addition to the challenges and the lessons learnt, the guide highlights the opportunities presented when managing transitions at the top.
We work to secure progressive social change so that communities become fairer, more inclusive and peaceful.
Drawing on our team’s international experience of philanthropy, we provide practical support, services and strategic advice to maximise the impact of donor funding for change.
We work to provide a bridge between the worlds of activism and philanthropy. We re-grant and support funders with their grant making programme design and evaluation.
By developing the skills and capacity of activists we enable them to be more effective agents for change.
We work locally, nationally and internationally through a core team with deep experience of grassroots activism, peacebuilding, advocacy, strategic philanthropy, politics & media.
Our range of supports is tailored to meet activists’ leadership and practice needs, developing networks and communities of support to broker connections and build solidarity. Our global networks provide a safe and connected space to share tactics and tools, learn and be inspired by leading change makers.
