To effectively build capacity for future challenges and opportunities, leaders must often seek out new ways to co-create solutions through partnerships with other organizations, coalitions, and network-building. This form of collaboration is a keystone of Catalyst Miami, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to build social and economic mobility for individuals and families in Miami-Dade County.
In this podcast, Catalyst Miami CEO, Gretchen Beesing, opens up about the strides she’s made leading the organization, as well as how the organization is looking to take on the impact and inequities of climate change. Gretchen shares the organization’s unique approach to co-creating policy and outcome goals for the community and building a robust platform of services for the future. Her insights will inspire responses to the following questions:
- How can leaders lift-up community voice and establish an ecosystem of partners in order to envision and create sustainable outcomes?
- What methods can leaders use to create a culture of innovation and a “safe space” for teams to address challenging issues?
- How should organizations be thinking about the big issues (i.e. climate change, racial equity) and the implications for evolving their overall mission and objectives?
