What we have in place
- We currently have a strategic plan and current data for our situation, which should make it easy for you to get started. We also have a recently completed organizational audit with key findings, and the ability to provide any other information you need.
How this will help
This project will save us $5,198 , allowing us to stretch our limited budget as we are also currently engaging HR consulting to help our internal organizational plans to support our employees who support the mission of Commonsense Childbirth.
We are thinking about long term sustainability and having proper board governance is critical to the success of our organization in the coming years. We need solid infrastructure and people who are engaged in offering their support and ideas to implement.
