Introducing GlobalGiving Disaster Feedback Fellows

Introducing GlobalGiving Disaster Feedback Fellows

GlobalGiving is offering an opportunity for ten disaster relief and recovery practitioners to become GlobalGiving Disaster Feedback Fellows. The purpose of the Disaster Feedback Fellowship is to build a community of practice among disaster relief and recovery organizations that collect community feedback and implement changes to improve their work.

Disaster Feedback Fellows will have the opportunity to spend one week in Washington, DC learning from each other, promoting their projects to an audience of peers and funders, and speaking at and attending the 2018 Feedback Summit on October 4-5, 2018. This Summit will bring together leading thinkers, practitioners, funders, and researchers to talk about closing feedback loops in aid, philanthropy, and government. We want to feature your important work among this group, regardless of your experience or knowledge of the topic. For those newer to collecting and using feedback, we will cover your tuition to attend a one-day Feedback Crash Course on October 3. This interactive workshop will equip you with the knowledge, skills and tools you need to listen and respond to feedback from the people you seek to serve.

Disaster Feedback Fellows will spend their first day in Washington learning from each other, as they share their experiences navigating their work in a post-disaster environment. The second day will be all about helping you grow your network and your work, as we provide opportunities for you to tell your stories to new donors or media outlets. Following their week in DC and with the support of GlobalGiving, the 2018 Disaster Feedback Fellows will help drive feedback learning and peer exchanges within their own communities and the greater GlobalGiving community.

We are looking for people with a range of experiences collecting and using feedback – from expert to novice! – so that we can learn and grow with each other.

Fill out this short form by July 20 to apply! As always, feel free to reach out with any questions.
