Inaugural 2022 #ShiftThePower Fellows closing session
The story of what happens when you bring together 12 global change-makers to deepen and expand the #ShiftThePower movement.

In March 2022, the Global Fund for Community Foundations, in partnership with Root Change, invited applications from the global #ShiftThePower movement for this inaugural Fellowship. The overwhelming response from the movement proved the hypothesis that there is strong interest in the role of networks, systems, and change-makers in achieving lasting, systemic change. It also confirmed that there is an unwavering desire for people wanting to reach beyond their networks and silos to engage in larger systems-thinking work. The nine month Fellowship was an experimental approach aimed at strengthening the collective “weave” between change-makers around the world and, by doing so, at deepening and expanding the #ShiftThePower movement.

In this session, Fellows will share what their journey has been like. The session will provide the opportunity for Fellows to reflect and share thoughts on issues such as: growing the evidence base for community philanthropy; what resilience looks like; alternative narratives for human rights and social justice; and, shifting funding practices and decolonizing aid.
