AFF PAST EVENTS

TURN IMPACT INTO a USEFUL MANAGEMENT TOOL.
Abu Dhabi – UAE
March 28 & 29, 2018

Arab Foundations Forum held its third capacity building module in 2018 in collaboration with New York University Abu Dhabi.

This two-day workshop, led by Soushiant Zanganehpour, co-founder of Tribeca Impact Partners,  aimed to help participants build on or improve upon their existing measurement and evaluation framework to be more fit-for-purpose to the cause on which their philanthropic entity is focused.

The content focused on identifying the right metrics, assessing various measurement periods and methods, understanding how many resources to allocate for measurement, and reviewed case studies and complementary methodologies for making M&E a more useful, high value, and dynamic management tool to philanthropic organizations, not simply an afterthought.

Lead trainer: Bassem Attar


Capacity Building #6: Amman, Jordan
“LEADERSHIP JOURNEY”

Description:  Building on the success of the Inspired Leader module in Cairo in November 2017 and the request from members, AFF is co-designing this module to become one of our own foundational training exclusively offered to the AFF network.

The module is a three-day program intended to transform leadership through the lenses of values and purpose. This journey enables leaders to:

  • Become highly self-aware – learn how to shift their reactive triggers
  • Understand what it means when we live our values fully – tapping into the wisdom that sits within our values
  • Connect with and align with our purpose, which motivates us to make a difference in our work and life
  • Improve our levels of trust, influence, collaboration, and the ability to have courageous conversations
  • Solve our business challenges through a higher level of consciousness

Ultimately, the course is designed to highlight the fact that change starts with persons and only then affects organizations: “Organizations do not transform … people do … and it starts with us as leaders”
