**This workshop is part of our 2023 Professional Development Series

How does your organization achieve its mission and what does it mean to have a strategy in place that is equitable? Strategy guides organizational governance, administration, programs and operations. This workshop will help you better define, articulate, and measure the change that your organization’s program activities are designed to bring about. Reflect and discuss with your peers how your current systems support your people, policies, processes, and practices and leave this workshop with the tools to help you build a framework that cultivates more equitable strategy.

Join strategy expert Clanzenetta “Mickee” Brown, founder of Special Project Partners, for this insightful and practical session that will help you to clearly describe your mission strategy and evidence of success. Due to popular demand we have made this session into a full-day so that participants will better be able to make data-driven decisions that hone their organizational strategy going forward.
