Strengthen and Refine Your Organization’s DEI Work: The “Unrealized Impact 2.0: The Hard Truth About Where We Are and Ways to Move Forward” Workshop is presented by Promise54. The Workshop will review data to understand what has (and has not) changed within the charter sector since the original “Unrealized Impact” report was released in 2017. Promise54’s expert facilitators will ensure participants leave this Workshop with an understanding of the status of the sector’s DEI work, the promising practices that have been identified in their work over the last seven years, and how to personalize a path forward based on the DEI profile of an organization.

Develop a Strategic and Compelling Organizational Narrative: California charter schools face a number of uncertainties in the coming years, including a challenging and daunting petition, appeal, and renewal process that leaves many leaders with deep-seated concerns about the future of their organizations. Participants in this Workshop will work with leading charter school communications professionals and veteran charter leaders and learn how to craft a compelling organizational narrative that will persuade even the most discerning of authorizers. Be prepared to develop and share your own powerful stories of impact and authentic proof point to conquer the challenges of tomorrow, one compelling story at a time! Reserve your seat now.
Establish Sustainable, Equity-centered Fundraising Strategies: Is there a gap between the mission and vision of your charter school organization and the public funding available to achieve it?
