Feedback on the Frontlines

Frontline Practitioners at the Feedback Summit

Thanks to your generous donation, you brought new, and needed voices, to the room at the 2018 Feedback Summit.

Equity scholarships brought 21 community changemakers working to democratize philanthropy, aid, and governance into the heart of the conversation.

The feedback movement stands at the precipice of a fundamental shift in aid and philanthropy where "expert" voice will no longer hold all the answers. We saw first-hand how frontline practitioners across the globe are at the leading edge of the feedback movement. The fresh and innovative perspectives of these community changemakers catalyzed a shift toward making feedback the expected thing.

Coming out of the Summit, equity scholars shared some of their key learnings, and ambitions, for the future of the feedback movement, including defining what feedback means in their own work “Feedback is a Noun, not a Verb” and examining how feedback can Build Trust Between Communities and Government.

We are grateful for your support in making it possible to host a dynamic group of leading practitioners who are committed to making feedback the expected thing to do. You are part of making the feedback movement a reality!

With gratitude,

Meg VanDeusen, Summit Manager

Supporting 3 front line practitioners!

The Feedback Summit is only one month away, and thanks to your generous donation we are able to support three frontline practitioners who are changemakers in their communities. We are proud to announce three scholarships to individuals working to democratize philanthropy, aid, and governance by putting the voices of citizens at the heart of decision making.

Historically, these sectors have made decisions about their constituents, not with them. The feedback movement stands at the precipice of vast and exciting change where "expert" voice will no longer hold all the answers - and you are a part of ensuring that we listen to and act on the voices of those who are most affected.

We are still receiving applications for scholarships from frontline practitioners and hope to be able to bring more of them to the Summit- we believe their voices and perspectives will add to the conversations happening in the movement, so we will continue to make a strong effort to raise the funds necessary to support their costs. 

We are grateful for your support in making it possible to host a dynamic group of leading practitioners to move the needle on making feedback the expected thing to do. You are part of the feedback movement. Thank you.

With gratitude and excitement,

Meg VanDeusen, Summit Manager
