The 2018 inaugural GlobalGiving Disaster Feedback Fellows program was a huge success and we’re bringing it back again this year!
We’re inviting GlobalGiving partners working on disaster relief and recovery across the world to apply to be part of the 2019-2020 Disaster Feedback Fellowship program. These 5 fellows will be part of a cohort of 10 frontline practitioners who are currently utilizing feedback practices in their work and will be supported by Feedback Labs for a year-long fellowship to deepen that practice.
If you’re a GlobalGiving partner working across thematic areas outside the scope of disaster response, you’re eligible to apply to this related Feedback Fellows program. Otherwise, please read on.
Disaster Feedback Fellows will have the opportunity to spend two full days in Washington, DC learning from each other as you share your experiences navigating in a post-disaster environment and participating in activities focused on helping you grow your network and deepen the impact of your work. You will have opportunities to tell your stories to new donors and/or media outlets, hear from experts in disaster risk reduction and management, and attend sessions on storytelling, working with data and the media.
All 10 Feedback Fellows will spend one week in San Juan, Puerto Rico developing feedback skills, promoting your projects to an audience of peers and funders, and presenting at and attending the 2020 Feedback+San Juan Summit on February 26 – 28, 2019.
Feedback Fellows will have access every month to webinars from experts in feedback collection and use (including their predecessor Feedback Fellows cohort!) as you gear up for the week-long in-person experience in Puerto Rico. There, you will spend your first day learning from each other and creating your own feedback plan in a one-day Crash Course. After the course, all Fellows will share their experiences at the three-day Feedback+San Juan Summit.
Following your week in DC and San Juan, and with the support of Feedback Labs, GlobalGiving, and the Siegel Family Endowment, the 2019-2020 Feedback Fellows will help drive feedback learning and peer exchanges within their own communities and the greater feedback community. This includes presenting your feedback plan and developing projects at a LabStorm, creating a Feedback Workshop back home, and implementing your feedback plan in your 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.
