Training boosts leadership for four charities
Four prominent members in the island’s social sector have completed a systems leadership training through the Inter Agency Committee for Children, Families and the Community.
The organisation aims to strengthen the island’s charitable sector and build collaboration.
The five-month course was completed by Dany Pen de Rodriguez, the executive director of Raleigh Bermuda, Keren Simmons, the programme director for the Duke of Edinburgh’s Award, Nicola Paugh, the executive director of the IAC, and Kimberley Jackson, the senior programme manager of the Mirrors Programme.
The committee said the programme helped to provide the skills to “drive collective work and address Bermuda's chronic and persistent social and environmental challenges”.
It said: “In recent times, it has become increasingly evident that addressing root-cause issues in Bermuda's social sector requires collaborative efforts.”
Live virtual training in theoretical knowledge and practical application came from the firms The Outside and Growth Development Solutions in partnership with the IAC.
