      A Critical Handshake

      Grants Committees and the Philanthropy Team -- working together for Impact

      Over the last several months, the WIN membership has been invited to participate in looking at what we mean by "impact" and how to maximize the impact that WIN can have. Through the WIN circles, discussions at the AGM and individual conversations, every WIN member has had the opportunity to contribute to the conversation. The results of these conversations will shape how WIN approaches philanthropy going forward. Read this great conversation between Maureen Vasquez (Grants) and Isabella Hinds (Philanthropy)  here
