Shifts for Capacity Building

Capacity building fuels world-changing work.

Capacity building helps leaders and teams understand how to leverage their strengths and access additional support to maximize impact. When integrated wisely, capacity building leads to impactful, equitable, and resilient organizations. At its most powerful, capacity building provides the direction and the fuel needed to change entrenched systems.

But too often, capacity building does not live up to its potential, leaving opportunities for impact on the table and causing more harm than good. At Catalyst:Ed, we have identified seven shifts as key to reimagining capacity building and transforming it to to a powerful, strategic force driven by equity-oriented values. We invite you to explore and engage with these shifts, learn more about the thinking behind them, and join us in translating the shifts into action.
