About This Seminar
As we continue to serve our communities in these unprecedented times, it is important to have a strategic tool to visualize your roadmap to success. During the COVID-19 pandemic, the political shift of power, and the fight for social justice; nonprofits have been responsible for getting the work done with little to no resources or direction. COVID-19 has lifted the fact that the nonprofit sector can benefit greatly by incorporating tools that help strategize efforts for policy/system change that reflect the needs of our communities.
A Power & Influence Analysis tool is crucial for setting a structure to analyze a constantly changing and complex landscape. One of the biggest benefits of incorporating a Power & Influence Analysis tool into your nonprofit work is that it can be used at any point in the planning and implementation process. Whether you are assessing the landscape to start a new nonprofit, organizing an effort to shift policy, or have been in service for 30+ years and are creating yet another strategic plan; this tool will help maximize your organizational efforts.
- Gain a specific process for identifying relationships between people, organizations, and institutions

- Tackle a key issue identified by the group using the analysis tool
