The Knitting Factor: Delivering on the Promise of Skills-Based Volunteering [Webinar]

Host Organization: Stanford Social Innovation Review


Is your organization looking for ways to create meaningful cross-sector partnerships? Are you looking for opportunities to deepen your nonprofit partnerships or expand your employee engagement programs? One of the fastest-growing corporate citizenship programs is skills-based volunteering—in which corporate employees use their business skills to help a nonprofit solve a complex operational problem. The benefits of skills-based volunteering include increased employee engagement for businesses, successful capacity building for nonprofits, and talent development for both sectors.

Achieving these results require “The Knitting Factor” which brings together three key conditions—a panoramic perspective, skill sharing, and sticky relationships—that enable skills-based engagements between the private and nonprofit sectors to create strengthened, sustainable solutions that don’t come undone when partners part ways.

Interactive Session: 
This webinar will be conducted as a lively, interactive program. You’re encouraged to ask the speakers questions during the session to explore the topic further. You are also welcome to join the LinkedIn group where presenters will answer additional questions after the broadcast.

 Real-world Examples:
Our expert panelists will share practical examples of how skill-based engagements between the private and nonprofit sectors can create strengthened, sustainable solutions that do not come undone when partners part ways. They will also provide you with the framework to make skill-based volunteering a part of your day-to-day operation.
