2020 has been a year unlike any other. In the nonprofit world, we’ve seen profound changes and innovations–yet there often isn’t time to reflect on all we’ve experienced together. On the morning of September 25th, Fox Advancement hosted its first Fireside Chat to do just that: reflect. We offered time for our partners, clients, and collaborators to pause, think about the past six months, and plan for the possibilities that exist in the next six months and beyond.
Eighteen colleagues joined the chat facilitated by Sarah McNally, who specializes in leadership, alignment, and culture.
What we heard from participants was that it was refreshing to meet someone new in a leadership role and learn about their organization. Participants heard from fellow nonprofit leaders about the challenges and successes experienced during COVID-19. For some, the time spent sharing in a small break-out group provided insights and new perspectives in their approach to leadership and aligning their team. For others, it was a great way to gather among leaders and reflect before the start of a busy Friday.
We were so pleased to have the opportunity to gather together. As a team and with our clients, we will continue to prioritize reflection as we work together to achieve ambitious goals in these challenging times.
Stay tuned for our Fox Advancement’s next Fireside Chat!
