Sample Key Findings
Optimizing Impact with Less Resources: Advocacy is not known for its big budgets or staff; what it is recognized for is its ability to network and pull ideas and people together -whether they’re internal or external -and to build a commonality of interest so that the group’s impact is broader than just one person’s efforts. These high-impact skills don’t always require large budgets. Continue to leverage and showcase this skill set, which can be highly leveraged.
