Notes from the last Executive Team weekly meeting

  • Program Committee Prep - Reviewed content to present and discuss with the Board program committee next Wednesday. We’ll be sharing the updated AI Theory of Change, specifically to gather any critical input on medium and short-term outcomes. This will be shared with all staff prior to our next MoFo monthly call.
  • 2020 Planning - Discussed some of the imminent key components of planning, including updating documentation on our 2016-2018 movement-building strategy to reflect the AI Theory of Change and articulate our learnings and the approach we’ve refined over the last few years.
  • Mid-year Goals Check-In - Briefly reflected on how the check-ins have been going. Shared appreciations for honing our goal-setting approach and having time to discuss progress, challenges and professional development opportunities outside of the day-to-day. Also surfaced the need for clearer guidance on aligning individual, team and org-wide goals.
