Using improv comedy to examine professional relationships.

Do power dynamics get in the way of your ability to work effectively with grantees and other stakeholders? Have you experienced situations that you wish you could have done something differently to defuse the grantee-grantor power dynamic?

Join our dynamic presenters for some serious fun as they help us navigate the difficult situations we all face in our careers, where we'll examine what so often happens when we bring funders and nonprofits together in a grantmaking relationship. If you feel power is present in your work with nonprofits and you're comfortable with this program format - where you can watch or participate – leap in!

· Factors that affect power
· How to deepen our self-awareness as grantmakers about the power dynamics that come into play with grantees
· Tools to mitigate our sense of power as Grantmakers

Designed for Funders who are comfortable observing or participating in improv comedy, and the irreverence that often comes with it, to identify ways of becoming more effective grantmakers.
