We'll be meeting with our regional partners from the Asian Pacific Islanders In Philanthropy's National Gender Equity Campaign's Organizational Fellowship Program this week.
Our staff will be making a presentation considering a number of excellent questions since we started this effort in 2009. We've been asked what has shifted or changed for our organization since starting the OFP? (for example – our mission, vision, values, structure, new programs) What are tangible practices that we have integrated into the organization as a result of the shifts and changes? What is our organization’s planned “gender justice/gender democracy” work for the year? And where do we hope your organization is at by the end of 2011?
These are challenging questions but important ones as we approach the next decade of development and ask what is important and meaningful for our work. We look forward to hearing from the other regional organizations as well, including Mu Performing Arts, CAPI, SOY, the Center for Hmong Arts and Talent and the Association for the Advancement of Hmong Women.
