FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE (December 8, 2022) Santa Fe, NM – Prospera Partners, a social-good consulting firm based in Santa Fe, is thrilled to announce its partnership with BIG – Bold Impact for Good to provide workshops for nonprofit organizations, boards, volunteers and staff in 2023. Centered on transformational leadership, systems change, equity, inclusion and justice, these four “BIG” workshops have been created to provide meaningful professional development and social-change strategies for those in the nonprofit sector. BIG – Bold Impact for Good is a fiscally sponsored program of the nonprofit Community Ventures.
The workshops are:
- Rethinking Philanthropy – Funding Systems Change: A 5-session workshop (January through May 2023) to help those involved in philanthropy – including private donors – recognize and transform systems of inequity in their organizations and learn how to make a greater impact with the wealth they hold.
- Rebuilding an Equitable Nonprofit Sector – Systems Change in Action: A 5-session (January through May 2023) community of practice, or working group, where nonprofit professionals will learn to identify and transform systems of inequity in their organizations.
- Dismantling Systemic Racism in the Nonprofit Sector: A one-day intensive (offered January 20, 2023) to provide deeper learning and engagement with nonprofit peers about inequities in the sector.
- Executive Director Circle: A 5-session workshop (January through May 2023) created to provide one-on-one support to nonprofit executive directors to discuss topics such as dealing with difficult board members, minimizing burn out and much more.
The workshops will be facilitated by Prospera Partners’ team who have decades of combined experience in the nonprofit sector, as well as in facilitation and program development. They will oversee each session, creating space and support for brave, productive, and supportive conversations that ultimately help organizations become more relevant, sustainable, and fundable in the long term.
New Mexico’s Mind the Gap Fund has signed on as the lead underwriter, noting that supporting BIG – Bold Impact for Good programs is a great way to directly invest in the success of the nonprofit sector while providing more equitable support to those who work in the sector, as well. Both emerging and long-time nonprofit leaders will benefit, learning to transform the work of the sector by transforming their individual approaches.
Vicki Pozzebon, founder and CEO of Prospera Partners and program director of BIG – Bold Impact for Good says, “As catalysts for change working with organizations, businesses, and entrepreneurs, we understand that positive shifts don’t happen overnight. But experience has shown us that they do happen with accountability, oversight, commitment and the kind of conversations that we will facilitate through the BIG: Bold Impact for Good programs. We are incredibly grateful to Community Ventures and the Mind the Gap Fund for their support of this important work.”
