Hub Topics

Funding Hub: Ensures that the funds distributed through the application-based funding program serve to support socially transformative projects that expand and enrich the SHIFT community, and that the new mechanisms developed to deploy larger strategic investments are aligned with SHIFT’s mission and values.

In-kind Support Hub: Ensures that the continuum of non-financial supports offered to SHIFT's funded projects result in the development of mutually beneficial collaborations and advance the socially transformative impact of this work.

Events Hub: Ensures that the events organised by SHIFT respond to the needs and interests of the SHIFT community, advance collective learning about social transformation across stakeholder groups and worldviews, and provide opportunities for deepening engagement with SHIFT.

Evaluation Hub: Ensures that SHIFT’s internal evaluation processes, and those conducted by its funded project teams with SHIFT’s support, are relevant, meaningful and able to contribute to increased socially transformative impact.

Governance Hub: Ensures that SHIFT’s decision-making processes are grounded in accountability to our community, informed by a diversity of perspectives, and designed to nurture a sense of shared ownership and contribute to collective learning about shared power.
