August AL!VE Academy: Centering Empathy, Equity & Experimentation in Volunteer Management

Join us for an interactive workshop led by Pause for Change Founder and CEO Heather Hiscox. In this 1.5 hour “hands-on” workshop, you will learn how to apply the P.A.U.S.E. framework and you will practice new skills and connect with colleagues to strategize around your biggest challenge or opportunity. 

As you hit the restart button and emerge from the past year plus, what could be possible if you centered Empathy, Equity, and Experimentation? What if these three elements were embedded into your own daily work and became the anchoring values of your organization as you address challenges and pursue opportunities? Best yet, what if you could emerge with new skills that left you and your colleagues feeling hopeful, appreciated, respected, connected, and inspired?

About Heather:

Heather Hiscox is a social entrepreneur passionate about fostering communities focused on assets, abilities, and abundance. Heather is Founder and CEO of Pause for Change. The P.A.U.S.E. method is a proprietary framework that helps changemakers address difficult challenges and pursue promising opportunities. With skills centered in Empathy, Equity, and Experimentation, organizations can be certain of which solutions will work, and why, using fewer resources, in less time, while achieving greater impact. Heather is also the Co-Creator of Possibility Project, an online conversion series and growing community of disruptive changemakers reclaiming their power through meaningful sparks, connections, and action. Heather speaks at national conferences about social impact disruption and innovation, and has launched several ventures that have benefited the social impact sector, connecting organizations to the training,
