Does the leadership of your organization believe having a productive culture is crucial to achieving your goals? Do you have some level of responsibility (positional or otherwise) for shaping culture at your organization? If so, you won’t want to miss the Exploring Your Culture to Effectively Reach Your Mission workshop facilitated by Grantmakers for Effective Organizations.  
Grantmaking that truly supports nonprofits and the communities they serve requires a deep understanding of organizational culture and its connection to nonprofit success. But how we initiate conversations about culture within our organizations, and how we make the connection to our external work, is not always clear.
Through individual reflection, peer coaching and small group discussion, this intimate, hands-on workshop will help you understand and begin to assess your current organizational culture and how it impacts your effectiveness and the success of your nonprofit partners. This workshop is the first of many steps you can take to begin to work on your culture and is best suited for organizations that are prepared to or have already dedicated time and resources to improving culture. You will walk away with tools to initiate culture conversations within your organization, and while this workshop is open to individuals, we also encourage you to attend with your colleagues. 
We'll tackle the essential elements of shaping a productive culture, helping you to:
• understand GEO’s culture framework and where your organization falls on that continuum;
• develop a better understanding of your existing organizational culture; and 
• explore your current and aspired organizational culture related to a specific organizational goal. 
Join us for this dynamic workshop and take the first step to identify a path forward for creating a productive culture that supports nonprofit success.
The event will open with networking and a light breakfast. Lunch will also be provided.
