Moving to Action
Moving to ACTION is an initiative aimed at enhancing effectiveness and collaboration across the Human Services sector in Edmonton.
It all began at a series of community consultation events in 2012 and 2013. Edmonton’s nonprofit leaders identified four priority action areas as the focus of the initiative.
- Foster Networking – at multiple levels
- Build Capacity for Engagement
- Align Work Strategically
- Connect the Dots – improve awareness of alignment and opportunity within the sector.
Moving to Action activities and initiatives will strive to improve awareness and connection among human service agencies, generate resources and support innovation and engagement. Activities undertaken through Moving to Action will be driven by the sector through collaborations, working groups, and project teams assisted and supported by ECVO.
ECVO Leadership Series : Executive Director Wine & Wisdom
Join your peers for a night of wine, snacks and meaningful conversation. This is an excellent chance to connect with fellow Executive Directors and CEOs in the sector and learn from shared experiences. The focus of this Wine & Wisdom is failure: what did you learn from past failure? How does failure drive innovation? How can we create a welcoming space for failure?
