Project details

What we need
  • Expert third party advice on process or managerial changes, geographic or programmatic expansion, potential pivots, or general strategic planning
  • Facilitation of an intensive, one-day strategic planning session with staff and/or Board
  • Note: If necessary, a follow-up strategic planning session may be scheduled
Additional details

BCAction is looking for a health justice-oriented leader to guide our upcoming strategic planning process. Brining together our board, staff, and key stakeholders and are looking for a strong facilitator to guide the discussion and provide direction as needed. We are looking for a leader with knowledge of the breast cancer movement, environmental/racial/economic/ and gender justice. We will likely need 2 day-long sessions to complete the process, and we would like to complete this by June 2021.

What we have in place
  • We currently have our Executive Director who is ready to orient you, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have former strategic planning documents that detail our history, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $4,465 , allowing us to Focus on our programmatic work to address and end breast cancer, and to support people living with and at risk of breast cancer.

Our strategic planning will guide the direction and priorities of our organization for the next five years. BCAction is a leader in the breast cancer movement with a unique watchdog perspective and membership of activists. Determining the goals and strategies of our outsized organization will have a huge impact in how breast cancer is addressed going forward.
