Notes from the last Executive Team weekly meeting

  • 2020 planning - We are in the process of expanding the scope of work for Aleron, the consulting firm that is working with us on a project focused on organizational effectiveness and impact measurement. Over the next few weeks, Mark and others will be working with them on a refreshed strategy overview (2-3 pager) that incorporates our work and thinking around healthy AI.
  • Strategy Retreat - The September Strategy retreat will take place the week of Sept 16 near San Francisco. It is an important kick-off of our annual planning process. During the retreat, we’ll build on the refreshed strategy overview and flesh out our AI theory of change with specific outcomes and activities to inform our work over the next three or so years. Ultimately, this will help us get more clear around our intended impact and how we’ll get there, and it will also help us narrow an important gap that currently lies between our theory of change and our OKRs. The outputs from this retreat will serve as guidance for more detailed 2020 planning with the rest of the org. Directors nominated participants from their teams and the executive team finalized the list which includes all directors and a handful of others from across the organization. We will share a list of all participants when confirmed and more details via email soon.
