Revive. Reinvent. Revamp. After two years of operating in survival mode and adjusting to the new world around us, it is time to consolidate our learnings, redesign our strategy, and not just survive but work to thrive. Borrowing from Nassim Nicholas Taleb – many institutions are fragile to volatility. Like a vase which breaks when it falls. The opposite of fragility is not robust – things that are unaffected by volatility, but anti-fragile – things which gain from volatility.
Resilience Strategies for Nonprofits in India (RSN), initiated in 2020 by CSIP in collaboration with faculty from the Harvard Business School, as a response to needs expressed by NGO leaders, is back for its third edition. The three day course designed for senior leadership in nonprofit organisations will build on the lived experience of sector leaders with specially designed modules on fundraising and compliance, strategic opportunities, and overall well-being of leaders and their teams.

Through three sessions each of 4-hour duration, the course will provide participants an opportunity to evaluate their organisations’ fundraising strategy, strategic needs and an enabling environment to reflect on leadership needs.

- A rich learning experience with case-studies and resources accessible on CSIP learning platform, beyond the three day sessions
