Rethink, rebuild: Seizing this system-shifting moment

Grapevine CEO Clare Wightman hosts a breakout session on systems thinking at today’s NPC Ignites conference.

Alongside co-hosts Seth Reynolds from NPC and Diane Smith (Head of Programme, Fulfilling Lives in Lambeth, Southwark and Lewisham), she will discuss why the systemic change brought to a head by the Coronavirus pandemic demands a systemic response from the third sector. Systems thinking helps us navigate our changing landscape.

The theme of her breakout supports NPC’s Rethink, Rebuild initiative, which is examining how to gather diverse insights and expertise to:

– Support charities’ resilience and adaptation
– Seize this system-shitfing moment
– Challenge long-held imbalances, inequalities and systemic dysfunctions in the charity sector.

The breakout is one of several over the two-day virtual conference. Speakers on the main panels include Baroness Diana Barran, Minister for Civil Society (including loneliness), Cassie Robinson, Senior Head, UK Portfolio for The National Lottery Community Fund and Joe Cerrell, Managing Director of the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation.
