Symposium on Scaling Social Impact

Join the Social Impact Exchange (www.socialimpactexchange.org) for a Symposium to Increase Knowledge and Skill Building for Scaling Impact Many nonprofit organizations are facing the decision of how and when to expand their reach. Growth and scaling comes in many forms: from replicating programs in new locations to developing breakthrough products and services; from scaling policy initiatives and social movements to online expansions through the use of toolkits and platforms. And there are social media expansions too – through knowledge sharing, network building and collaborations. All are unique forms of scale and require different expertise to initiate and sustain. This afternoon symposium will provide opportunities for nonprofit organizations, funders, professional service providers and academics to: – gain insight from organizations in the process of scaling – develop knowledge and skills for business plan development – acquire critical leadership skills necessary to grow an organization, and – network with your peers. The symposium will be held at the Museum of Jewish Heritage in Battery Park (36 Battery Place, New York City). The fee for registration is $75.00.
