The roots of India’s civil society run deep, drawing strength from a reservoir of endurance, perseverance, and sheer belligerence of not giving up in the face of adversity. Its response to the COVID-19 pandemic has been no different. Since March, we have witnessed civil society leaders and organisations galvanised to meet the needs of communities hit hardest by this health, economic, and social crisis. More than ever, their success requires a focussed mission and strategy, a solid operational model, strong governance, and leadership skills.
To meet these capacity building needs, the Centre for Social Impact and Philanthropy (CSIP) at Ashoka University, in partnership with Harvard Business School faculty, is offering an interactive workshop on Resilience Strategies for Nonprofits (RSN).
RSN is a certificate programme designed to meet the real-time needs and answer the questions organisations are grappling with in these unprecedented times. Through three 2-hour sessions, the cumulative course will provide you with the opportunity to reflect on your organisation’s response to the crisis, assess your resilience needs, and reimagine your future.
Who Should Participate?
—Representatives from Indian nonprofit organisations of any size and scope.
—Senior leadership and management who are strategic decision-makers within their organisations.
—Organisations seeking to hone their approach to the COVID-19 crisis.
This is a registration-based, three-part programme being offered via 2-hour sessions (5 p.m. to 7 p.m. IST) on July 27, 28, and 29 for a nominal fee of INR 5000 (inclusive of GST) per organisation; proceeds will be donated to COVID-19 response efforts. Applicants are requested to commit to attending all three sessions, and organisations may send up to two qualified representatives to this programme.
Needs-based scholarships are available for qualified candidates. For details, please contact Pallavi Kaushal at email@example.com.
