Presented by Philanthropy Massachusetts

Psychological safety is the ability to speak openly about ideas, questions, and concerns without fear of negative repercussions. Psychological safety is linked to team effectiveness and innovation across all sectors.

As funders and nonprofits work together to achieve mutual goals, they must navigate discussions around questions, concerns, and failure in constructive ways. During this interactive workshop, we will explore factors that prevent open dialogue between funders and nonprofits and identify steps to increase and foster psychological safety within and between both constituents. We will spend time thinking about how ensuring psychological safety can lead to better application and reporting processes, site visits, conversations, among other things.

This workshop is appropriate for funder and nonprofit professionals at all organizational levels. Participants will gain insights into the importance of psychological safety within organizations and teams, as well as across organizations and between funders and grantees.
