As the adage goes, “if you want to go fast, go alone, if you want to go far, go together”. Although the latter is the desirable approach, CSI leaders are often faced with the challenge of having to go “fast” with programmatic timelines, while working with multiple community stakeholders that require trust building, which may entail a measure of “going slow”. How can this tension be managed, and what implications does it have for CSI design and implementation?
The AVPN Academy Corporate Social Impact Centre is hosting a Learning Circle for CSI practitioners to discuss the challenge of building trust in the face of programmatic timelines.. We will be joined by Roberta Feliciano, Managing Director of ABS-CBN Foundation. Roberta will be speaking from her experience leading ABS-CBN Foundation, which has been immersed in decades of child-welfare, disaster relief and community-building work in the Philippines.
