GlaxoSmithKline partnered with Taproot Foundation on July 24 to design and execute a pro bono ScopeAthon. In this three-hour workshop, Emerging Talent professionals worked with Philadelphia- and NYC-based nonprofit partners to diagnose organizational challenges, brainstorm solutions, and then develop a practicable scope of work for a project that builds the nonprofit’s organizational capacity.
By helping nonprofits articulate their capacity needs and strategize how to address them, leaders directly applied the skills and each nonprofit walked away with a scope of work for a project that would help them more effectively deliver on their missions.
The impact of the Emerging Talent program?
- 100% of nonprofits agreed that the outcome of the session was something they will implement and that the sessions exposed the nonprofit leader to transformative ideas that will positively impact their organization.
- 100% of volunteer respondents would participate in another ScopeAthon, would recommend ScopeAthon to a colleague, and reported that they better understand the strengths anddevelopment opportunities of themselves and their peers.
