If you could have dinner with 1 person who you regard as a leader, who would it be and why?

What motivates you to create social impact?

Host Site Project
The Fellow will focus on improving operations by having the opportunity to collaborate with the Advisory Services team to strengthen the team’s knowledge base and outcomes measurement. First, the Fellow will work to design the governance and management of NFF’s knowledge management platform, conduct research to strengthen the repository of knowledge, and provide implementation support. Second, the Fellow will work with the Advisory Services operations and Knowledge & Communications teams to reinforce strategies and processes for assessing and communicating the impact of NFF’s Advisory Services work. The Fellow will work to develop strategies and tools for documenting the activities and processes in the initiatives, developing a hub of learning that can support the advisory services team internally (creating training and support tools and documents for oncoming future new staff), and our clients by enabling the sharing of best practices and facilitating strategic conversations around investment readiness and the core idea of complete capital (this work to not exceed 10% of the Fellow’s time), building upon the work of additional summer capacity provided by an intern or New Sector Fellow. This person will help by adding to NFF’s Human Capital and build the flexible capacity the organization needs as it moves through its next strategic activities.
