PHILANTHROPY AND the digital revolution

Join us as we break into smaller groups and take a deeper dive into the themes of our plenary session on Preparing for the digital transition. 

These intimate workshops will bring together small groups of WINGS members for interactive discussions.

What you can expect

  • Small groups with maximum 10 participants, which gives you the chance to meet other members of WINGS in an intimate comfortable setting.

  • Facilitation from key members of the WINGSForum wider design committee, who have in-depth knowledge and experience of the philanthropic sector.

  • Short sessions with lots packed into them. The workshops will ease you into challenging topics and equip you with new ideas and tools to approach them in your own organisation.

Please note workshop spaces are allocated on a first come first served basis.
