Notes from the last Executive Team weekly meeting

  • 2020 planning - Reviewed draft list of priority initiatives that MoFo might lead or support in 2020 that align to the theory of change. This is a step towards helping us define org-wide objectives for next year. The executive team will continue to work on these and share with directors to refine and finalize them in the coming weeks. Discussed scope and prep for the meeting on December 4th & 5th in Toronto when the full leadership team will convene to discuss and finalize top-level priorities for the org, from which teams can do more detailed planning in December and January before All Hands.
