1. Louis Boorstin (Osprey Foundation), 2. Heather Grady (Scaling Solutions for Shifting Systems) (Co-host), 3. Tim Hanstad (Chandler Foundation)(Moderator), 4. Kathy Reich (Ford Foundation), 5. Maya Winkelstein (Open Road Alliance), 6. Kim Wright-Violich (Echidna giving)
A discussion on the challenges and opportunities for donors to more effectively support system change efforts. Keeping in mind guiding principles and lessons such as those outlined in the Scaling Solutions Toward Shifting Systems Initiative and Embracing Complexity report, how do donors’ perspectives, approaches, behaviours, and practices need to change? What has worked? What is needed in terms of shifting the donor/doer power dynamic and related trust? What are the debates among donors and within donor institutions? What can “doer” organisations do to effectively influence these debates? https://www.rockpa.org/project/scaling-solutions/ and https://catalyst2030.net/resources/embracing-complexity-report/
