Curating our activity: A dynamic approach
We understand that system change is a long-term endeavour. To enable change, we aspire to make stable commitments to partners and areas of work. We also understand the need to maintain a flexible and dynamic approach to the work we enable because the contexts and challenges themselves are fluid. Over the course of a multi-year engagement, we set time frames for assessing the progress we’re making in a particular area. Taking time to reflect on what we’re collectively learning and achieving across all the challenges informs the dialogue between the Board, Philanthropy Committee and other teams on how to improve and curate our endeavours. When we decide to stop work in a particular area, we look at how to consolidate gains, pivot to a new approach, or if all else fails, exit partner relationships respectfully.
