Common Impact’s October 2021 Skills for Cities – a day of skills-based “flash” consulting – was exclusively dedicated to building the capacity of BIPOC-led, racial justice, and digital inclusion organizations.
The event included 180 participants from 17 nonprofits and 16 companies, representing four countries. Together, we generated over $165,000 for BIPOC-led, racial equity, and digital inclusion nonprofits in just one day. The cross-company volunteer teams collaborated with nonprofits across the country to address capacity constraints, pivot strategies, and reinforce their confidence in their work. We were blown away by the deliverables we saw and the outpouring of support we heard for the nonprofits and for skills-based volunteering.
