#154 How to Convene for Impact
How can you create a meaningful social impact convening? This episode features six questions to ask before you convene. It further explores these ideas through two conversations with various participants of one such convening, Opportunity Collaboration. The first conversation is from the first or second day of the four-day convening, and the next is from the final day or a few weeks after. From their reflections, we gain not only insight about this convening, but also more broadly about what makes convenings worthwhile and valuable to them.
Featuring stories and perspectives, including:
- James Okina, Student Scholar at the Watson Institute of Lynn University attending his 1st OC and founder of Street Priests in Nigeria.
- Erina McWilliam-Lopez, former Associate Director of Social Impact Lab at Lynn University and Memberships Manager at The Intentional Endowments Network (IEN).
- Sarah Sterling, former Director of Impact at Pomona Impact and Operations Manager at conveners.org
- Yessica Flores, heads an education social enterprise in Peru called Kantaya
