Build and Grow Your Social Enterprise
September 9, 2015 This highly effective, informative and interactive session provides an overview of the ‘what and how’ of social enterprise. Learn about the steps of development for social enterprise and hear lots of examples of successful Canadian social enterprises. All participants will receive a copy of Enterprising Non-Profit's comprehensive Canadian Guide to Social Enterprise. Organizations must attend this workshop to be eligible for an enp-mb Social Enterprise Development Grant.
Writing an Effective Grant Proposal
September 24, 2015 Writing an effective grant proposal is very much like creating an effective brochure to sell your product or services, or writing a good business proposal. You need to write persuasively and to present your case in a clearly written, logical way. A good grant proposal presents your organization or your individual work in the best possible light, and convinces the potential funder that your goals are aligned with their own mission statement and vision. It makes them want to support your work by awarding you a grant.
Making Inclusion Real: Implementing Cultural Competency in your Organization
October 8, 2015 Do you want to build your organization’s capacity to welcome and honour people? Do you want to work from an anti-oppressive or cultural competency framework, but are unsure how? This workshop will examine the importance of creating organizational structures that support cultural competency and review tools that put policy into practice. Participants will explore what it means to build and review policy with an anti-oppression lens and review day to day practice that can enhance your organization’s cultural competence to build increasingly respectful and inclusive environments.
Participatory Management: Increasing Staff Involvement in Decision-Making
November 5, 2015 The workshop will provide the opportunity to discuss why and how increased involvement of staff in decision making can be effective. The role of organizational policies and management practices will be reviewed in terms of creating a work culture that feels safe for participation. We will also explore some of the skills and attitudes that are important for both groups and individuals, and the added skills required of managers, for a participative work culture to be sustained and garner the benefits attributed to greater staff involvement in decision-making.
